I chased this guy around for a while, but I had a hard time keeping it in focus. Hopefully when my 7D arrives it'll be a little easier...

I had my shutter on 1/400 but I guess it was still moving way too fast.

C&C appreciated!

Very nice.

C+C? if that were me I would have had the bee slightly out of focus, possibly with some motion blur.

I think your method works better :)

Excellent capture, the majority of the bee is perfectly sharp. It's actually refreshing to see the motion blur,
it shows that the creature is dynamic, alive and you have had to work to get this picture.

As often as not one's intent or perfection fails to convey reality or what life is really like. ;)

Thanks for the comments, guys!

I actually liked the motion blur, even though my original intention was to get it "frozen in time".

I don't think it's a carpenter bee because the "butt" was fuzzy, not smooth like a carpenter. This picture doesn't show it too well though.
