This is either Agapostemon or Augochlorini...I can never tell which. The first frame is taken whil it was actively feeding. Frames 2 and 3 are after I got it to take a little honey. Sometimes I just about have to drop it right on their nose. :)

Excellent set Kenny. Care to share your "bait" mixture, storage, application, etc..? Also...I wish you left the exif in your images so I could learn from it. :)

Thanks, Nate. EXIF should be present...I can see it with KUSO viewer. Bait is just locally produced raw, unprocessed honey.

Evidently a little honey goes a long way! Excellent!

Thanks, dossy. Yep, it sure does.

Wow the colors on that bee is crazy. Nice shots!

Thanks again. :smile:

All I have to say is the color are amazing! These are really nice. What lens and combination of accessories did you use?

Strange. I haven't been able to view the exif in any of your images lately and I have tried 3 different viewers including opanda. Bummer.

Don't know what to tell you. I can see the EXIF with the KUSO viewer. The lion's share of my shots are F/11, 1/250, ISO100-ISO200. I may compensate the exposures a hair or the flash a hair depending on conditions.

That's fine...I believe you. My luck just has it that I can't get Kuso to work. I more like your exif to see what system you shot it with, but I now see that you are all Nikon again.
