I don't know, maybe 3 or 4 inches. Honey bees are quite docile when away from the nest. They don't mind being photographed. As long as you don't mess with them they don't mess with you.

Nice shots. You nailed the focus/exposure on these shots. I really like background on all of them too.

I would too, but in order to stop the lens down and expand the DOF, you pretty much have to use flash in Macro. I've had some success but find that I get a lot less accpetable shots.

These are beautiful, sharp, colourful shots Les. What settings were you using?

Thank you Paul, they were all taken in manual mode, ISO 100, f11(I think, with manual lens it's hard to remember but I usually use f11 with flash, but it could have been f8 since I was using the 2x teleconverter) and 1/160th with the internal flash. PP was with SilkyPix.

Great shot's, and with the Internal flash makes them even more impressive.

Thanks, the build in flash is ok up close. but an off board flash would be better.

I can already taste the honey .

Off topic - I have a super takumar f/1.4 50mm. Do you think with a 2x macro tele I can achieve the same magnification as yours?

What brand is your 2x Macro tele ?

Wonderful macros here, very crisp, great colors. Only thing needed now is to get the flash off camera and make for some extra cool lighting!
