This was one of the first photos I took with my camera and still one of my favorites. Let me know what you think!

Sorry I'm still learning the lingo around here. BIF means...bee in flower?
And thank you! If I'm being honest I surprised myself when I went through the shots on the computer.

BIF = Bee In Flight or for birds, Bird In Flight.

That's a fine shot. I have had the odd success at bees in flight, but I have had countless OOF bees bums disappearing from the edge of the frame as well! (OOF...out of focus, if you're catching up on the jargon around here!)

Keep practising...it does get easier!


Growing old disgracefully!

Ha, that makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the explanation!
I'll certainly be practicing but not for now while it's 0 degrees (F) out.
