Technique: It was early in the morning and this Wool Carder Bee was having a tough time getting its metabolism going. It went from being active and walking around the flower to clamping onto a petal and snoozing. I was holding onto the stem of that flower with my left index finger and thumb, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep everything steady.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

I was holding the camera horizontally, but framed this shot for a vertical composition.

Thanks folks! Spent a lot more time working on my light last year than I had originally planned to, but it paid off.
