Pollination Series 1-1 by dalantech Pollination Series 1-1 by dalantech
Shooting Carpenter Bees in the heat of the day is some of the most difficult macro photography that I've ever done! Hoping to get another chance to photograph them before the "macro season" is over.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F16, 1/250, ISO 800) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken with a monopod that had no ball head. The monopod helps me to steady the camera, and not using a ball head means that I can rapidly change the height of the my rig.

I do not know where I can start to talk about this shot, because I am speechless right now.
In my opinion, it deserves the tallest punctuation due to the fact of the difficulty of shotting a bee, they are not there, posing for you, and in here we can see it with all its details. It is possible to appreciate the tongue of the bee, in its pollination work, the pollen covering the animal...
I have to thank the patient of the photographer, who bring us a intimate moment between the animal and the flower, and of course, implore them to continue with this.
What do you think?

Damn!!! This is super awesome. I kind of shudder when I see it (being afraid of insects and all) but it looks amazing.
