Finally nailed the frozen wing in this shot !! :) :) even pollen on the wings
Lots of practice but practice makes perfect as they say.
Shot with my Canon EOS650D with Sigma 105 macro lens. f/11, 1/200, ISO 100, 105mm, off camera Speedlight set at 1/8th power no diffuser, flash zoom set at 105mm no high speed sync.
the drawbacks have been the shallow depth of field, dark background due to flash settings and harsh light from a single flash source without diffuser.

This is a new shot for my personal project to freeze wings in motion.
The lavender plants I put in this year as attracting a lot of attention from the bees 9the reason I put the lavender in the garden.
I shot with my Canon 650D and sigma 105mm macro and off camera speedlight set at 1/8th (power to freeze the wings) flash triggered with Viltrox OC-E3 cable. ISO 100, 1/200, f/11 #bee   #canonphotography   #canon   #insectphotography   #insects   #naturephotography   #naturephotos   #nature   #macro   #macrophotography

I shot this the other day and something I have started to notice only because on a number of shots I have is the bees antenna as it get to the flower head its antenna go eather side of the flower head almost asive to guide the bee straight onto the flower.
