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.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (~4x) + 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 (glossy side toward the camera).
