Feeding Bumblebee II

This is the same Bumblebee that my son Eddy found. It hung out on my patio overnight and I fed and photographed it the next day. Later on in the afternoon it finally got warm enough for the critter to fly off.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F13, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to about 1.5x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT, E-TTL metering, -2/3 FEC. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Sharpen AI and Clarity in that order. I injected Agave nectar into the Daisy the Bumblebee is feeding on.

WOOOWWWW ... You take very nice photos!. If I would like to share them in full resolution with others - e.g. web designers, bloggers, etc., who are looking for them for their projects or presentations, register here and post photos https://photoclicker.net. I'm just starting out, but I'd like to create a website with good quality free photos that will benefit everyone.

I love the little secret bumps bees have on their heads.

Such a lovely little specimen Bee icon.8
