Winner Feature I: GeorgeXVII
Winner Feature
It is my pleasure to introduce you to our first Winner Feature from DDSuggestionDrive's February Drive. Each month, we will be congratulating one of our top 5 suggesters for their participation.
Today, I have the pleasure of sharing my interview with GeorgeXVII, who suggested work from a grand total of 569 artists! :faint: A traditional artist himself, George stands out in the DeviantART community because of his generosity and passion to help others.
Interview
Use this space to provide a brief introduction to yourself:
Hi, my name is GeorgeXVII. I'm a 26-year-old born in Romania but I grew up in the beautiful country of Spain.
I've been a deviant since June 8, 2014 and I swear that DeviantART changed my life in a good way. I've visited this site as a non-member for several years before I decided to make my own account, because I felt that my work wasn't g

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.
