I enjoy taking photographs of bees. They’re attractive, they visit colourful flowers and the challenge of capturing a moving target adds to the fun. I took this photo with my 105mm lens using a flash and a diffuser. It’s a nice combination when taking fast moving insects as the flash freezes the movement of the insect and the diffuser softens the light nicely. Out of camera the background was rather flat, adjustments to the contrast, exposure and shadows brought out some detail.
