    These little guys have been all over my raspberry bushes the past few days. They don't move quite as quickly as the adults and since it was still early this morning, they stayed still long enough for me to get some, what I think, are decent shots.

    C&C appreciated

    All shots are hand held with Sigma 105mm macro lens:

    1.] f \7.1 -- 1\250th -- ISO 100

    2.] f\7.1 -- 1/250th --- ISO 100

    3] f \ 8 --- 1/250th --- ISO 100

    I think you should've gotten in a little closer........ :lol:

    Nicely focused and crisp.

    Just a shame about the shadows. Get hubby to hold a diffuser for 'ya. The whites are blown.

    :lol: I was thinking when I posted these that the bee in the photo was much larger than the actual baby bee, which was about the size of a honeybee. The way the bushes are set up it makes it very easy to get up close and personal.

    I do have a diffuser, I'll give that a go next time. Thanks.
