Newborn Blue Mason Bee II

Osmia caerulescens. While inspecting my solitary bee house I thought some of them might hatch since it was 17C, so I had the camera ready.


Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
