Mating Red Mason Bees
Technique: It was cool this morning when I found this mating pair, and with both of them feeling lethargic due to the temperature I was able to coax the female into climbing onto my finger. I set the Fstop to 11 and the shutter to 1/125th so that I could expose the sky behind them. The tricky part is hand holding over 2 kilos (4.8 pounds) of camera gear while sliding the lens on my hand to get them both in focus. Lots of deleted frames.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 1x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering). This is a single frame taken hand held. I am the finger model :)
