Long time no post

Now that I have a garden and I'm planting a lot of flowers I hope to be doing more macro work -took a break, but I missed it. We have a group of small solitary bees nesting in one of the plants, and this one was sleeping by anchoring its proboscis in the flower's stamen. I blogged about it and shot a video of the studio I set up for the shot.

Canon 1D MKIII + a MPE-65mm macro lens (@5x) + a Canon MT-24EX macro twin flash. F11, ISO 100, and 1/250 (shutter speed irrelevant since there's no natural light in the scene):

Lovely capture- not heard of using the proboscis as an anchor either.

Very nice John, and getting the proboscis, eye and antenna in focus. Good to see you back.

It takes a while for the garden to become populated but food and shelter will do it every time.
