I am so looking forward to shooting more of these this summer. I haven’t posted these before but they are from one of the best years we had for insects so I had a few left over to process. Bees for the most part are benign, they won’t bother you. The bright light of a flash does not sway them from their task. Unless harassed most species will let you get close enough for a shot. The other thing to remember is you are going to have to significantly crop your images even if you use a micro lens and extension tubes. Bees’ eyes are reflective so they can catch the sun or your flash. They take their time on good flowers and bushes so that helps a lot.
