Well, if you take enough images the bee is bound to fly into the focal plane sooner or later.

I don't know if you realize how good a shot you have here! Very very impressive. I struggled to get a butterfly in focus at macro sizes, this is insane. Great shot!

Thanks Matt, I do realize that this is a real nice shot and I am very thankful by all the wonderful comments.

I've spent hours and hundreds of shots trying to get a photo like that and never managed it. You've done really well!

This one only took one (very lucky) photo.

In fact, I didn't even know the bee was there until I looked at the photo on the computer afterwards. I was just taking a photo of the flower!

Nice shot! Besides the detail I like that the bee appears to be headed for the flower that is also in focus.

Ive spent lots of time trying to get a shot like this and failed. Brilliant!
My only criticism is I would like to see more detail in the wings. (kidding!)
