[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I've said before, i'm trying to catch up with posting to Trek Lens. Bees are an obvious target and this was taken at Buckland Abbey, a National Trust property.
Normally I use aperture priority, but because these blighters are pretty fidgety I used shutter priority and to give me some freedom I didn't use a tripod.

f5.6, 1/400 sec, 100mm, ISO 200 and spot metering

Good day. Remarkable to say the least ( for me ). Superb detail with amazing colour. It is so wonderful to look at this presentation. The bee looks so soft and fluffy.


Its good macro and well focused on the object and has enough sharpness.


Hi Robert,
Natures elegance is so well portrayed in this close up.The warm vivid and matching colors have made a perfect graceful natural image.One can even notice the small insect on the petal, well taken.

This is one the amazing poster by lights and also a great presentaion of details by proportions well done ROBERT SMITH
