Wanna Bee?

Part of "MY BEST" Set, a collection of Images that I feel represent my skill as a Photographer, as well as reveal my eye for picking good quality Images. View more of MY BEST here.



On a trip to Pondicherry last week, I had borrowed Prabhakaran's telephoto, while he had taken my wide angle L Lens. I saw this beautiful bee flying, and I told myself "Wow...I want that bee captured in my sensor."


My wife often says this to me... "Be careful what you wish for. You may as well get it."


Well this bee, just did that for me. I want to thank her for listening to my call. I could only take one shot...and this was it. I got really lucky...If you see closely, look where the bee's head is...Its inside the petals of the flower.


Photographed with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and Canon EF 100-400mm F4-5.6 IS USM L Lens. Handheld.
