Bee shots are really hard to get...I can shoot a couple hundred shots and get just a couple keepers. Key is a good tripod, shutter release cable, and lots of luck...lol
Yours has good color...bit out of focus...great effort though...7/10

Here is another I grabbed the other day....

8/10. Dull colors, but sharp. Could do with a touch wider DoF.

I don't know why you guys say this is so hard. It took two shots and bit of patience to capture this free-handed.

Depends on what your goal is...the shot you posted is easy...trying getting a macro shot with great detail...that is not so easy.

Not a fan of bees (unless you count bumblebees)

I believe I had to settle for a pick out of 4 or 5 shots, in one of which he is targeting the flower itself, where I'm focused on the flower. After that he basically flew away. I must say, I was kind of invasive, I can imagine for a 2cm Bumblebee that a camera and a guy with a hat is kind of scary (as if I'm not scary without those two things).


Took that shot with a cheatcode. Don't have any 300mm lenses with a Macro setting (closest I have to that is a 200mm with no Macro setting, which requires me to stand a bit over 1 meter in terms of distance). Though I bet, many of you can tell me exactly what I did here to get a shot at a distance of about 20cm.

8/10 the color melted my monitor.

The image isn't very sharp and a little over exposed. 6/10

Interesting shot with great timing...
...no idea how you got it.


This one was standing still and there was no pane of glass between camera and subject.

Same old DSC-V1 with the x1.7 telephoto

I feel the leaves detract from the subject. 6/10.

Photoshop?
Different facial expressions and forehead not lit as is in foreground.

Speaking of tricks of the light:



An accident of missing the macro switch.
