Taking a Break

Technique: This female Red Mason Bee stopped for a moment on a leaf to sun herself and do some maintenance. It's a pretty common behavior, and the trick is to move slow enough so that she doesn't get spooked before I can get a few frames.


Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 400) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX with both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering. Early morning diffused sunlight to camera right. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
