Critters in December Series 1-2
It's been very warm this month, with temperatures in the low 20s C. So after building a new diffuser I went looking for something to test it on and wasn't disappointed.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Feeding Solitary Bee Series 1-5 by dalantech
Feeding Solitary Bee Series 1-5

I found this solitary bee immobile on one of my sunflowers after a storm came through. I waited until early in the morning to photograph it hoping that it would be lethargic, but it became active. So I put some honey on a flower petal and got the critter to climb onto it and start feeding. What I like about this frame is how the bee's gola (tongue) is bent -it was literally lapping up the honey like a kitten drinking milk.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I am holding on to that petal with my left hand, and I'm resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady. The "blue sky" is a piece of light blue plexiglass with a piece of glossy photo paper behind it.

November Hoverfly II
It's almost December and it's still warm enough to find Hoverflies eating pollen.
