_MG_8641 Bingo - Nailed it!

I applied no post-processing sharpening.
It is so hard to get a hovering bee in focus. My record is about one sharp one for about 30 not so sharp! I've found I have to use a small enough aperture to cover a deeper depth of field and a fast enough shutter speed, both of which, unfortunately, raise the ISO.

Canon EOS 7D

Is that red pollen or is he wearing pants! What a great shot. Perfectly sharp. V

Superb image! The collected pollen seems to be red; never saw that before.
