Miner Bee
Overcast skies and intermittent rain set up the perfect conditions to go looking for a lethargic critter to photograph. I found this semi-active Miner Bee on a Buttercup flower and when it would stop moving I'd look for a good angle to take a shot.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Sawfly at 5X
I was trying to get some head shots at five times life size of this lethargic Sawfly when it woke up and started feeding. The framing was just too tight at 5x to get the critter's mouth parts, so this is one of the better shots.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, +1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Miner Bee
Overcast skies and intermittent light rain setup the perfect conditions to go looking for a lethargic critter to photograph. This semi-active Miner Bee was a fun subject to shoot. When it stopped moving I'd look for a magic angle that would make the most out of what little depth is in the scene.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Female Red Mason Bee
Here's one of my female Red Mason Bees trying to start her day. It's normal for them to chatter their mandibles when they need to get their metabolism going. Looks threatening through the view finder, but it's just their way of getting their blood moving. My hard working girls have filled 137 of those Crown Bees Mason Bee tubes so far.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
