Lately I've been going after active subjects. The world, and my gallery, doesn't need another dormant insect. As a result I'm getting fewer "keepers", but I like the images that I have been getting. Here's a Carpenter Bee feeding in a Passion Flower. A pretty "confused" scene, but the best I could do shooting an active subject in a jumbled mess of a flower.
Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F16, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I set up my blue plexiglass and photo paper background to keep the background from being black. If I had gone for a natural light exposure for the background there would have been too much "clutter".
