A beekeeper was kind enough to crack open a few hives for me, and I managed to photograph a honeybee birthday (Apis mellifera liquistica). The girls were definitely keeping an eye on me while I was shooting them.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 1x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Male of Megachile (Chalicodoma) parietina.

Technique: It was a cool day (18C) with partly cloudy skies and intermittent light showers -perfect weather to go looking for solitary bees since they'll have a tough time keeping their metabolism up. I got lucky and found this Mason bee semi-dormant in my Lavender.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Male of Megachile (Chalicodoma) parietina.

Technique: After photographing this mason bee in my lavender I turned it loose in a plant on my patio while I went to have lunch. Evidently the little guy got active and had lunch as well, because this is how I found him later on that same afternoon. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering).

A program called Zerene Stacker

Sorry I should have been clearer - I meant to ask, how did you get the 100 photos that you stacked, particularly from such a moving subject?

I used some sugar syrup to give this Bumblebee a reason to let me get close.

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. I also took the shot with the camera horizontal, but framed the subject so that I could turn the image to the right. It's easier for me than holding the camera vertically.

I'll have to grab another lens.
The bees have been prolific this year so far which is encouraging.
last few years its been an oversupply of Bumblebees! :-(
