Thanks for looking

Thank you, shooting 400mm from a short distance tracking is a real bugger when they fly out of view, the 120-400 has a min of 1.5m.

These are great Shane, I haven't had much success in flight like this, even at 1/000 they are hard to capture

Wow! Love them all but the first is really special with the flower in such good focus and the bee on its way! Excellent work

Thank you Bob, agreed, I dont think 1/1000 is fast enough either.
