    Really nice. I'm new to the site so I may have missed out on stuff others already know this but: what equipment did you use to take these?

    Yeah, me too! These are so colorful and so sharp. Really excellent.

    I'd like to know how close you were as well as what mm & lens you used. Pretty amazing....

    First, welcome to the Cafe, I'm sure you will enjoy being here!!

    Thanks to all of you for your posts!!

    I used my D300, and 105mm f/2.8 VR lens. Just a rough estimate, but I would say I was about 2 feet from the bees......
