Another angle of the Red Mason Bee from Tree House III. Sadly this little guy is probably gone now since the males only live long enough to mate. The females are busy building nests in the same tree through, so I'll see his offspring next year.
Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (-2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
Technique: I had to camp out in front of this tree, early in the morning, for quite some time before the little guy got use to me and the camera. We played a lot of "Bee-Ka-Boo".
