The flight of the bumblebee

Our gardenflowers are regularly visited by bumblebees searching for nectar and pollen for their colony. The same bumblebees often return to the same type of flowers and in the same way. This made it easier to photograph these quick and busy nice creatures. They fly like dancing in the the air and challenge your photographic gear and skills.
I mostly used an exposure time of about 1/2000s, high ISO's, a tripod and a fixed focus on my macrolens + extender(90mm + 1,4x).
