Mason Bee at 5x

I went out early in the morning when the bees are just starting to get active to get this shot at five times life size. In the morning a lot of solitary bees have a hard time keeping their metabolism going so it's easier to get close to them. Like all of my insect macro photos this was taken hand held and without focus stacking. Check out 5Happy5's drawing of this shot! 5happy5.deviantart.com/art/Mas…

Tech specs: Canon 40D (F10, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lesn (@5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (-1 FEC).

This is an  amazing photo, such a huge amount of detail. I'm doing a drawing from this photo (I hope you don't mind), because it's such a facinating photo :D
