Bee On Flower

Bee On Flower

I took this photo whilst on holiday last year in Cornwall. We visited the Eden Project, and saw some amazing displays of colour there. Capturing insects like in the above photo is tricky, as the little critters move around a lot. Getting your focus right is also a real pain in the rump! My recommendation is to be patient and setup on a tripod near flowers where there are a number of bees. Frame the image you imagine in your mind, set your focus and exposure settings and then wait! It might take some time, but as soon as the bee lands, take as many pictures as you can as they move around a lot. Once you get into editing find the one with the bee in a position that you like and discard the rest.
