European Wool Carder Bee VIII by dalantech European Wool Carder Bee VIII by dalantech
Technique: I go looking for critters sleeping in my yard before sundown and then photographing them in the morning before they can get active. Although lately the early AM temps have been in the low 20C range, so they don't stay dormant for long. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F16, 1/250, ISO 200 with highlight tone priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering with -1 2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Should be hard to find unless you know where to watch

The bees in my yard are very predictable -there are three European Wool Carder bees sleeping in my lavender as I type this.

I should really get some plants that attract insects. But just like a pet I am sometimes away to long to sustain them. The only plant till now surviving my mistreatment are geraniums.
