Day 59: Busy

click photo for larger version

We have this plant in our back yard that flowers once a year for about 1 week. During that time its tiniest of flowers is a busy spot for local bees and other nectar hunting insects. This guy was kind enough to remain still for about 1 second...just enough time for this capture. 90mm macro lens with a ring flash. 1/60 sec at f/16. ISO 100

That's impressive .... its also impressive you didn't jump away and squeal like a girl (as I probably would have done) being that close to a bee. :)
