iMacro: The Insecticons
Bee Collecting Nectar
This is one of my first few try of macro photography. I just use a close-up filter for this shot on an 85mm f/1.8 lens and my camera mounted on a monopod.
Really nice shot , great colours great composition and the focus is spot on .
That close up filter has really worked well on your 85mm lens , have you thought about trying extension tubes if you don't have a dedicated macro ?
Great image well done .
I will try that in the future. Thanks a lot!
Blue Banded Bee
This specie of bee is very active during daytime that you cannot caught it staying on one place. And I don't have a photo of it during the day, yet.
When I was about to call it a day on one of my macro outing, I noticed a group of flying bugs hanging on a long root a plant. I thought they were flies as I used to see them but I was amazed when I saw these creatures finding their place on the single root. They flap their wings and wiggle their feet when someone tries to land on their place.
I saw this lone bee on the other side of a small branch of the same plant where the other bees are staying. They grasp the stem of the tree using their mouth.
Neon Cuckoo Bee
"Neon cuckoo bees are stunningly beautiful, with glittering metallic blue spots. They are called cuckoo bees because they lay their eggs in the burrows of other bees. " -ProjectNoah
