I baited this honeybee with some sugar syrup to give her a reason to let me get close. Zucchini pollen is huge! This is a frame from 2009, and I'd like to recreate this shot with my current gear.
Tech Specs: Canon 40D (F13, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 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.
