Photography, Cycling and the Internets

Buzz Buzz

The evening light today was perfect for shooting some tree blossoms and the busy bees working on them.  I was using my 28-135 lens for these shots which means I had to crop quite a bit to get the right detail.  The real challenge here was sharp focus with the quickly moving bees.  For that, I used live view, zoomed in to  quickly  manually focus on the bees while somewhat still.  Once they started to move, I let the rapid-fire shutter go.  This collection is out of about 30 total attempts.
