Today was a cold cloudy day with more snow in the forecast. Not being a fan of winter, I thought the perfect antidote would be a colourful summer scene. I took this shot of a metallic bee with my 105mm lens and flash. Although pleased with the result, I stood a bit too far back so I had to crop more than I would have liked. (I am new to macro photography and still getting comfortable with insects.) When the warm weather returns there will be plenty of opportunities to try shots like this again from a closer perspective. It’ll be fun to compare the results.
Happy New Year All!
