Technique: The weather turned cold and rainy while I was at work, so when I got home I went looking in the yard for a critter that might have been caught out in the open and found this bumblebee.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, with the key on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Technique: The heat from my hand started to warm it up and it became semi active. So I very carefully coaxed it onto a different flower and gave it some artificial nectar.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, with the key on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Technique: I have tried several times, in the heat of the day, to hand feed this species but it's too scitish. But since this one was lethargic and was pretty much acclimated to me I decided to try it. That Glossa (tongue) feels rough, like being licked by a little cat.
