Sleep Walking VI

Technique: It was early in the morning and this Wool Carder Bee was having a tough time getting its metabolism going. I was holding onto the stem of that flower with my left index finger and thumb, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep everything steady. The bee would occasionally move, and when it stopped I'd roll the flower's stem with my fingers to turn the critter toward the camera and look for a composition.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Goodness, I'd be too terrified to even consider doing what you did to get this shot. But it was absolutely worth it, what a beauty. Congratulations, you definitely deserved the DD not only for the amazing photo, but for your guts as well!
