    What a good worker bee! And what a wonderfully detailed capture. The pollen is just everywhere. Awesome work, Mike.

Your insect macro series is simply spectacular, Mike! I have the 100 as well, and can't begin to imagine getting captures like yours!

Thanks so much! This shot was a little dark right out of the camera. It was a good thing I was shooting in the RAW format. It is a little tricky since I am shooting with both the camera and flash in manual mode. Sometimes my first guess on the settings isn't right and I lose a few shots that way. :-) Mike

Thank goodness for raw :)
A spectacular macro, Mike...jaw dropping, actually.

PS...I was in a hurry choosing 101 favorites...changing my mind...think it's this one! Well, they all are favorites...what a great series of macros.
