Another good macro shot, your macro shots get better and better Dirk.

It's nice to hear - thank you Phil ! Shooting bees when they are collecting pollen out in the field can be a verry frustrating ! You got 2 seconds time to focus and press the shutter ! So 15 pictures out of 100 are in good focus but in 10 of them the subject has gone in the meanwhile ! The other probleme is sun light and flash light which in many cases to hard (creats over contrasted pics) !

Thank you for your details about 6 V power suply for the bird studio and your 10x diopter !!

regards Dirk

I really love this macro shot, I have read your comment on how hard it can be the get the shot, I have a similar photo taken last year, what I did was to watch the bee going from flower to flower all the time he was moving towards me, so I had the camera ready and waiting on just one flower, after a short wait he finally landed on the flower and i got the shot, I must find it and post it on here, but its no where near as sharp as yours.... I'll give you a Bee + for this shot, well actually an A+ but it sounded better

Great photo, regards
