I spotted this European Wool Carder Bees (Anthidium florentinum) snoozing in my Lavender in the evening but waited until early the next morning to photograph it hoping the cooler temperature would give me more time to shoot it. This time I managed to photograph the critter for over half an hour.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to 4x) + 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 used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.
