Shot with the 50-200mm + EX-25. 50% crop. Experimenting with the FL-50 + Omnibounce as well. ISO 400, f/8, 1/160s. Handheld. No processing other than conversion in Studio (including +3 sharpening) and some extra sharpening applied in Irfanview.

Parts of the bumblebee's earmost legs are irritatingly out of the picture, but this was really the one shot I got that was actually focused on the bee -- I've been having difficulty focusing on them when they move from flower to flower quickly and when the flowers are so small that the bumblebee makes 'em shake when it lands. I figure it'll probably be easier where they're targeting larger, more sturdy, less numerous (so less switching?) flowers.
