In Deep Pollen
Lens: Pentax M 100mm F4 Camera: K10D ISO: 200 
Posted By: old4570, 01-29-2015, 05:53 PM

I just got a new ( To me ) flash ( in the mail ) , and was outside testing when a Bee landed right in front of me . Unfortunately the camera was not really set up to take Macro photos ( just testing the flash ) but I tried to muddle through never the less . Not the greatest photos , but I do have hopes for the Metz flash .

Imagine my surprise as Tinkerbelle landed in front of me ..
At first I was " Like what ? "
It took a few seconds to realize it was a bee trailing all this yellow dust .. By the time the picture was taken most of the pollen had fallen off ..
When it flew bye it was just a yellow ball with a contrail of yellow dust !

It'S Great! How did you manage to get close so close to her? She loves to pose?
