Before i go and reinvent the wheel.. anyone have any tips , for a easy , cheap , clear windbreak for shooting small flowers on a windy day. Clear for lots of light for macro shots , and open enough not to discourage bees from getting to the flowers. thanks.

Try using one of your collapsible reflectors (translucent one), or a one person scrim, if you have either in your existing photography stuff.

For example:
the portable/compact and convenient Westcott 6in1 20” or 30” work reasonably well; [Utilizing the one or two stop diffusion panel, or white reflector]

or,
the lightweight & compact Matthews Road Rags 18" x 24":

What about making one out of a heavy duty clear contractor trash bag, and 1/2" pvc pipe. You could take the bag and make an "A" shaped frame (without the point on top) that will fit inside the bag snugly. You could make it collapse and have the bottom two legs open at the bottom so you could put a metal rod into the ground and then slip the frame into the rods and it will have no problem standing up on a windy day.
