Bee images with a 100-400 lens

Used a small flash on camera, i find this an easier way of working than with my macro lens for shots like these

I often  do the same Mike ...  really nice BIF ...( bee in flight  )  on that first image too.  Composition  is really pleasing  as well with that bottom corner giving a contrasting anchor to  the creamy background against which the hovering  bee is shown  with super clarity ..   excellent shot. Mike ,,, 👍

Excellent shots Mike, I wouldn't have thought of using a big lens for macro shots.

A superb series......I haven’t done Bees seriously since I sold all of my macro gear and Sony camera.....

Top marks from me...

Often work nicely, insects (understandably) don't really like having a lens pushed in their faces so the long lens lets you stand off far enough not to disturb them.

Nearly all the best shots I have taken of flying insects have been with a long lens ... for precisely that reason as you said James.
