I could watch this Sweat Bee foraging for pollen in a Sunflower all day. The hard part was tracking her as she moved with the MP-E 65mm set to 2x. This scene is only eleven millimeters wide. Lots of deleted frames.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Clarity in that order.
