Sweat Bee on my Finger

Early in the morning it is common for bees to feel the heat coming off of my hand and climb onto it. This Sweat Bee is warming up on my finger. I was resting the lens on my hand to keep the scene steady, and so I could control where the depth of field was going to fall in the frame.

Possibly Halictus sexcinctus.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to over 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Sharpen AI and Clarity in that order.
