Honeybee Feeding on a Blackberry Flower III by dalantech
Honeybee Feeding on a Blackberry Flower III
I baited this honeybee with a little of her own honey. Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F16, 1/30, ISO 1600) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens + a 12mm extension tube. (~1.4x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I am holding on to the flower stem with my left hand, and I'm resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I am holding on to the flower stem 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 (glossy side toward the camera).

Blog post with a video of that background.
