After a cold snap we have spring like conditions and this male Blue Mason Bee hatched today. A bit messy cause he hasn't had a chance to clean himself off. After warming up on my finger he took flight.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/60, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI and Clarity in that order. I dragged the shutter to help expose the natural light in the background.

Do Mason Bees keep their honey in Mason jars?
