Weekly feature LXIII
Here are some of the best pictures submitted to :iconBreathtaking-photos: this week and in the past days
Enjoy :heart:
Note: nobody know why the size of the thumbs is messed up lately... Pictures get either full-size or 300 pixels wide, and this is the best I can do at the moment  :shrug: I apologize for the problem!

Finally catching up on deviations/I like Woodlice
Wow, I haven't actually checked any deviations of people I'm watching since MAY! o.O
It all kinda just stacked up and I was like "no way am I looking through a box of 1000 picatures today" "oh shit now its 2000..." ^^;
Currently its 6000... this is the point where I kinda can't ignore anymore.
And I feel like such a jerk not immediately checking out all my friends' stuff when they always pop up to see my pictures within like five seconds of them being posted!
I should probably unwatch some people so my deviations are manageable again. (Like.. unwatch some big name people or groups and stuff, never unwatching a friend!)
Also I should really try and rejoin/renew my join in a group or something... i forgot I was even in groups XD Dunno whether I should go for EA-LEC or Xros Hunters World though?
EA-LEC = a free choice fantasy thing where I could use any character, and the storylines are cool and there's the Weekly Prompt. However there isn't really anything to do EXCEPT that weekly prompt

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.

Red Mason Bee IV
This newly hatched Red Mason Bee (male) is one of mine. The cocoons I harvested last year are starting to hatch. Due to the cool temps (13C) and overcast skies this little one was having a tough time getting his metabolism up. He would move around and then freeze, and I'd look for a photo.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Red Mason Bee III
About a dozen Mason Bees hatched today, and I carried them to some flowers so they could get some energy. Due to the cool (14C) partly cloudy weather they had a hard time getting their metabolism going. This little guy would forage for a while then turn around to look outside the flower. His metabolism would tank and every time he stopped moving I'd look for a photo.

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 (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount to keep the flower from blocking the "A" flash head), E-TTL metering, (+1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
