One of the first photos I took with an old 50 1.4 reversed for macro on my EOS M3. I was amazed by the pollen grains! The wasp is maybe 1/4 inch long.

Please feel free to offer me any suggestions you may have. I am pretty new to macro, but love it!

If I take enough pictures, at least one of them should turn out...maybe

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was wasp or bee, but glad it held still long enough for some photos.
