Feeding on Mint I

I got lucky when I found this solitary bee feeding in slow motion on some mint flowers -normally this time of year the heat makes them hyperactive even in the early morning. Blog post on this image.

 

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F10, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@4x) + a diffused MT-24EX. I used a sunflower leaf for the background to keep it from being black and there is no natural light in this photo (all flash).
