Bees in Flight Encore: Minolta 100mm f2.8 (4 Images)

Gears: A700, old/battered Minolta 100mm f2.8 macro

Place/Time: My backyard around March (just recovering files now from crashed hard drives : ))

Technique: Mindset of having fun, used pre-focusing, focus limiter and free-style following them once they move from flowers to flowers. The closeness of grape hyacinths worked well with focus limiter/pre-focusing.

Hand held, JPG and basic post processing (cropped, a bit shadow recovery, a bit NR, minimal sharpening).

A bit bigger versions in these links:

Praise and you will be crucified. Whine and you will be exalted : ).
