Bee, handheld telephoto!
Apr 8, 2013

I was out shooting birds and saw this HUGE bee.  It's called a Valley Carpenter Bee and it is about 1 inch (2.5cm) long.  They are really fat, golden colored with green eyes.  I tried to get close but it seems very aggressive, looking straight at me and flying directly at me when I got close.  So I kept my distance at about 10 feet and started shooting away with my FZ150 with the LT-55 on.  I was surprised that few came out OK!
