Technique: I injected artificial nectar into a Lavender flower, and even though I was using bait it was still a difficult shot. Of all the bees in my yard Hairy Footed Bees are the most skittish.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 400) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens + 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.

Technique: I camped out in front of a mason bee house so I could get a shot of a Mason bee going to work. When they first get active in the morning they are trying to get their metabolism going, and are a little apprehensive about coming out of the reed that they are building egg chambers in. So they'll pause for a few seconds at the entrance and come out a little at a time. Once they get going they'll shoot out of that reed like a rocket.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (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). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
