I'm going to show you some pretty lousy macro photography, but aerodynamics that I find fascinating. You can tell from the captions that I see much in the bee's flight that reminds me of short takeoff/landing carrier aircraft:

Approaching the carrier, nose up, and landing gear still retracted:

The reason the shots are so lousy was that I had the camera set for stationary macro shots, but became fascinated with capturing at least a few shots of these fast little critters in flight. I was so preoccupied with "catching" them that I never thought to change the settings to make sure when I caught them they were sharp :rolleyes:

Thanks for looking. Comments are welcome (even caustic ones)!
