    This is a super shot! Unlike the smaller bees, these guys stick around on the flowers a little longer. Maybe I should try a spot meter on them as well. I have been using matrix with very mixed results.

    Thanks for posting this!
     
  9. Another great bee shot Mike!

    Excellent capture Mike. You are making it very hard to resist that 200. 8)

    About how far away from Mr. Fuzzy were you on this shot?
     
  15. Thanks for your comments.... Mr Fuzzy was about 20-24" away....safe distance, even though he doesn't bite.....Just buy it and get it over with..!! :wink:
