Silhouette of a bee



Kind of an interesting shot from a couple weeks back. I was actually aiming for a better shot of the bee, which was floating in and out of view. 





But the silhouette sort of works - a different take on the 'bee and a flower' photo. 

I shot the photo with my Nikon D5100 and Nikon DX 85mm micro (as in macro) lens. The photo might work better if a little more was in focus. But that's the thing with the macro lens -- you sure can get close, but your depth-of-field is extremely narrow even when stopped down to a small aperture (this was shot at f/8; max aperture on the lens is f/3.5). 

My photos are available as prints at very reasonable prices, including mounted options that are ready for hanging. More info here. Please feel free to check out my SmugMug site for all my work.
