Amazing Animal Photography
Hey Everybody! Dia dhuit from Ireland!
Over the past couple of months, I've been collecting photos of animals both new and old. Some have many favourites, others few if any at all.
I hope you enjoy and please fave the article and some of the artists at least, they really deserve it. :)
Yes, there are a lot of cats, I guess they're just very photogenic! :D There are all sorts of others though. :)
Enjoy. :D

Red Mason Bee I
I was harvesting Mason Bee cocoons today and about three dozen hatched. This is a newborn male Red Mason Bee.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2.5x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT, E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Blue Mason Bee I
After over a year of not shooting macro I've decided to get back into it. This is one of my Blue Mason bees (male) that recently hatched from my solitary bee house. Looks very similar to the Red Mason bee, except for the eyes (Red Masons have black eyes).

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT, E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Sleeping Solitary Bee II
Here's a higher magnification view of how this solitary bee uses it's proboscis to anchor itself while it sleeps.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Sleeping Solitary Bee I
Not the first time I've seen this species of solitary bee sleeping with it's proboscis anchored into a flower's stamen.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Mason Maintenance
The bad weather is really making it tough for the local pollinators. I was shooting this waterlogged Mason Bee when he started cleaning the water off of his fur.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
