European Wool Carder Bee Portrait

This European Wool Carder Bee (Anthidium florentinum) was semi-active so I was able to get a shot without its mandibles clamped onto a plant stem. Looks menacing but they are really docile and excellent pollinators.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to almost 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.
