9969 Bee in flight

This is a shot I've been trying to get for ages now! If you haven't tried the MP-E 65 macro lens, it's amazing BUT it has no focus adjustment other than varying the magnification or distance to the subject. The thing that makes this lens spectacular is that it starts at life size ie 1:1 and goes to 5 times life size. I'm really hoping to get some more of these shots now that summer is starting (at least in this part of the world).
