Like every photographer who enjoys shooting macro, I am forever chasing bees from flower to flower to get a great shot. Mostly they don’t work out – you only get the bee’s butt, or it is out of focus from the narrow depth of field; and of course the bee always takes off just as you are ready for that winning shot. And then there’s wind; the bane of every outdoor macro photographer. Frustrating. Never work with bees and kids.
Chase enough bees and get enough practice, and eventually you’ll get something right. Here’s one shot with my Nikon D700 and Tamron 180mm f3.5 Macro.
