...because it let me get close, and would wake up and move from time to time. all of the "Solitary Bee on Mint" images are of the exact same bee -I'd take a new composition every time it stopped moving.

SO cute.
I love bugs, they are beautiful creatures that no one really EVER appreciates.
I'm happy to see this picture here, it shows that SOMEONE still cares about the little guys.
And it's a BEAUTIFUL picture.
Excellent work.

Nice to see how well the MP E-65 performs! I was thinking about getting one of those, and the sharpness of the image makes it even more tempting.
Great explanation on how you do it too - smart setup! :) Up to now, I've always tried to get macro shots on in situ flowers :D
