A messy European Wool Carder bee that was semi active even though I waited until 6AM to shoot it. I found it the night before but was hoping it would be a little more lethargic if I waited until the morning to photograph it. When it would calm down I'd look for an interesting angle. Took over one hundred frames and I'll probably only publish four.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 3.5x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the stem of the flower with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

Overcast skies and intermittent rain set up the perfect conditions to go looking for a lethargic critter to photograph. I found this semi-active Miner Bee on a Buttercup flower and when it would stop moving I'd look for a good angle to take a shot.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Not sure on an ID for this one (taken in North Carolina), but it appears to be guarding a brood?....
