    Have been trying to get a shot from the front, but this bee is very camera shy. It takes off at the slightest movement of the camera. What do you think so far? I know the background is not the best.

    Not bad. I would keep trying if I was you to get a really sharp shot. I know what you mean about them being skittish. I spent about an hour trying to get good in flight shots of one but patience pays off and I ended up with a wall hanger. If you decide to hang on to this photo, I'd at least crop him out of center for a little better comp.

    As others have mentioned, the soft, featureless background actually complements the bee very well. The bee is resolved pretty tightly as well, but there is certainly still a bit of motion blur... what shutter speed were you working with in this shot?
