Feeding Miner Bee

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

 

Technique: I injected 2:1 sugar syrup into a Sunflower so the critter would have a reason to let me get close. I shot from a low angle not just because it makes for a better mage but also to get the proboscis and the face of the bee in focus.
