Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/60, ISO 100) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 37mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX (-1 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I used a syringe with a .8mm diameter needle to inject 2:1 sugar syrup into a Lavender flower. You can get bigger needles, but .8mm is a good compromise between being small enough to get into most flowers and yet big enough for thick liquids. Even though the bumblebee wanted the sweet stuff it didn't want me getting close and it's natural for them to pull away from me, and I used that behavior to get the angle that I needed for this shot. Lots of curves, and the depth is thin and flat. But the bee made it easier for me when it pulled back from the camera. Ignore the shutter speed -the flash was the only significant light source on the subject. I dragged the shutter to pick up some detail in the background.

Good job, very sharp. Looks like a lion with that ginger mane.
