I shot this Bee this afternoon while walking around the garden with the D2X. I grabbed a couple of shots handheld and was surprised I got anything worth keeping. I have never seen a bug that looks like this guy.

Fantastic capture - he is absolutely covered in pollen - makes me want to sneeze !

I find handheld is about the only way I can capture anything, but I have to use a flash to get enough light.

Hard to improve on those adjectives, but they all describe this shot Scott. Great capture. :wink:
