Photographing Bees (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

One of the interesting things about photographing bees is that you can also get them with some great flower backgrounds. More importantly is that you get some contrast between the bee and the bright colours around it. The first photo was taken with an XT-2, a 50-140 lens and a Godox flash. The second was taken with a Nikon D500 and a 200-500 mm lens at 500mm. This is not to say you need a macro lens, it does go some way to say close-ups of insects can be done with other lenses, assuming you don’t mind cropping.
