Ronald, great timing on your part; one of my goal's is to get a bee in flight, haven't been successful yet but you've inspired me to keep trying; great work!

Perfect catch with fantastic wide crop, Ronald!! Don't you just love doing close ups and macros?

Thank you very much Susan; I certainly do enjoy close up work and macros! I have found that it is much easier to get flying insects with my 70-200 Canon L f/4 lens. I can sit back about 4 feet from the subject, with the lens at 200mm, and get a pretty decent close up!
