Gotta love the way flash can freeze action that would be a total blur w/o it. ;-)

Doesn't get much better than this capture of a bee in flight.

Great catch. It looks like it was in a bag of Cheetos. LindaS

Yes, very impressive! I love how even the wings are captured due to your skillful use of flash. An exceptional shot. V

Another great handheld macro. You do so well with that flash system.

Great catch, Roy.

Roy, I'm as impressed as all the rest, a perfectly timed and in focus shot of a flying bee .... who woulda thunk ;`).

In fact I'm so impressed I have to ask a question I've never asked before; what license fee, if any, would you charge me, to allow me to use the bee as my laptop desktop?
