Technique: I just sat on the ground in front of my solitary bee house and took this shot as this Mason bee came back with more mud to cap off the reed that she filled with egg chambers. I waited until she was in a position where I could get at least part of an eye in focus, and in the mean time I took test shots and adjusted the FEC. Over a span of about 30 minutes I shot 62 frames and kept only 2.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 1x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering). These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held.
