Forraging Sweat Bee by dalantech Forraging Sweat Bee by dalantech
I really like photographing these little female sweat bees as they forage for pollen in Sour Grass flowers because it's really difficult. When it's windy they can't tell the difference between the breeze and me grabbing onto the flower to keep it still. But today there was almost no wind. Lots of deleted frames.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (close to 3x) + 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.
