I went to my sister in law's house to photograph the Bumblebees in her Lavender. She lives in the mountains above Itri, Italy so I got there at 5:30 in the morning hoping I could photograph them before they got active. Unfortunately it was 20C (68F) and they were pretty much hyperactive. I found a few that were having a tough time getting their metabolism going but they didn't give me much time to shoot. Due to the pandemic I wasn't able to go to her place earlier in the year.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Clarity in that order.

You'll have to excuse the black background in this Digger Wasp shot. I took it in the field in an area where there was no significant natural light in the background and nothing behind the critter to reflect the light from the flash. Had to get a shot though cause I rarely see them. Another heat of the day photo of a critter that was more hungry than afraid.

The Paper Wasps were in a somewhat awkward position within the shrub this morning, so I couldn't get a clean set of frames for a decent stack. Taken with Helicon FB Tube, 24 frames and stacked in Helicon Focus.

Cheers

Dennis

Thought it's about time I grabbed a picture of my set up with the Helicon FB Tube and Canon 180mm F3.5L Macro lens.:-)

Cheers

When I found this bee I wasn't sure what it was doing, but it didn't seem skittish so I decided to try and take a shot. When I looked through the view finder I realized that it was blowing a bubble, and every other second or so it would stick its proboscis out. I've been told that they can blow bubbles as a way to cool off, but it wasn't hot on the day I took this shot and the critter was in the shade. Still interesting that they can exchange heat that way. It might have been trying to concentrate the nectar that it collected as well.

Well it's obvious that the key to better bug pics is to string more parts together:lol:. So I hooked up athen 11mm tube and the 1.4t/c to the 100/2.8 this morning. Full sun is a bit harsh and hand holding this combination for very long makes me a little seasick, but it certainly does make the bugs bigger. Both images uncrossed.
