Digger Bee

Technique: I injected artificial nectar into a Lavender flower, and even though I was using bait it was still a difficult shot. Of all the bees in my yard this one is the most skittish.


Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 400) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, both on the Canon flash mount). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. Camera set to expose the natural light in the background, with E-TTL flash metering exposing the subject.
