Technique: I used a syringe to inject artificial nectar into some flowers to give this Bumblebee a reason to let me get close. This species is very skittish, so even with the bait it wasn't easy to photograph. Lots of deleted frames. They seemed to make a sport out of landing with their backs to me.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 25mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, both on the Canon flash mount). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. Camera set to expose the natural light in the background, with E-TTL flash metering exposing the subject.

I'm not a big fan of black backgrounds, but I like how the Glossa (tongue) turned out.
