p.1 #1 · Carpenter Bee at high mag


My wife found a lethargic Carpenter Bee (probably slowed down by a serious mite infection). Managed to get a couple of compositions out of my head, and got a mite as it crawled across the bee's eye. All images are single frames at F11, and uncropped. The first is about 4.5x and the second is 5x.

Thanks Michael and Mark

Both compositions are now stuck in my head -I'm gonna try to take similar shots of other creatures. The first frame needs a little work -should have turned the camera a little more clockwise and waited for the bee to move its antenna so that there wouldn't have been anything in the foreground that's out of focus. The second frame is pretty much dead on and I think I'm sending that one to the printer.

The reflected color is a reflection from the flower it was on -a happy accident that I think worked out really well.
