p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Leaf Cutter Bee


I went to my sister in law's place (up in the mountains of Itri, Italy) to photograph the bees that forage in her Lavender. This is a new one for me, a Leaf Cutter Bee (possibly Megachile willughbiella, Willughby's Leaf Cutter). This is also the first field test of a new set of diffusers that I hacked, and I think I'm done messing with them.

Tech Specs: Canon 90D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to around 1x to 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL mode, -1 FEC). These are single frames taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Photo AI and Clarity in that order. All images are 32MP.
