Male of Megachile (Chalicodoma) parietina.

Technique: After I photographed this little guy I turned him loose on a flower and while I was eating lunch he must have woken up and foraged. Later in the afternoon this is how I found him, all covered in pollen. I held on to the flower's stem, and then rested the lens on that same hand to help keep the scene steady.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x to about 4x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering). These are a single, uncropped, frames taken hand held. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.
