This isn't as sharp as I prefer my insect photos to be.... but, it'll have to do until I have another chance.

Thanks for the kind words, fellas. I guess it comes from my bourgeois tendencies!

It looks like you were a lot closer than I've ever been - looks good to me.

Bumblebees are pretty chill as long as you don't actually get in their flight path or wear cologne or perfume when shooting them. very high shutter speeds are definitely needed if you want to freeze them in flight. And good lighting.
