Cool temps and partly cloudy weather create the perfect conditions for shooting small solitary bees like this Dandelion pollen covered male Blue Mason Bee. Although most people treat Dandelions like they're weeds they're actually an important pollen and nectar source for spring pollinators.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + 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.

Luckily, bees don't sneeze.
