Cactus Flower and Honey Bee exposure no. 3
Kiev 60 Arsat 80mm f2.8 Hoya +4 Close-Up Lens FujiFilm Pro 400H Arista C-41 - A productive weekend, the Cactus Flowers were still blooming Saturday and the bees love them. Using the Arsat 80mm with a +4 close-up lens had me a little closer to the stingers than I would have liked, but it was worth it. Trying to pick the flower the bees would land on was a little tricky. The bees always seemed to avoid the one I was hovering over with the bulky Kiev. Finally I had to move in after the landed, find the focus and pull the trigger. I got more that I missed, so all and all, a productive day.
