Wool Carder Bee Series 1-1 by dalantech Wool Carder Bee Series 1-1 by dalantech
I found this Wool Carder Bee (which seems to be a wasp or hornet mimic) snoozing in my Lavender.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: Check out the video youtu.be/vJXQ61hKoiA

Brilliant shot, colours and clarity!  It looks like a fuzzy wasp.  Seeing as they terrify me, I likely wouldn't have gotten close enough to even contemplate such a shot.

It's actually sleeping by clamping down on a Lavender stem.
