Honey Bees by thedarkroom

Honey Bees

My echinops is adored by bees and hoverflies. I set up tripod (yep honest I did!), used macro lens setting on 300mm zoom, I had the remote shutter ready and waited. A little red symbol appeared on the live view screen, no idea what it meant, but it was RED, so probably a serious warning. The symbol was the shape of a thermoeter, my camera was overheating- as was I - so I stopped!!!

Hot photographer - Jackie
Brilliant macro!!!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond 20 Minutes at that time of day can seem like hours in high heat!

Really well done catching two of them at the same time. It is such a popular plant! And you can see the pollen on the legs so clearly.
Well done!

Yes - nothing like a camera club to be brutally honest!
And yes - you probably should have closed down your aperture (f-11 or higher) and increased the ISO to compensate. But - I still say if is a fabulous shot!
