2014—Take Off

I went out late morning to try photographing the bees again. I didn’t need flash because of the bright sun and I was able to increase the shutter speed to 1/2000s so I was more successful in stopping motion…at least while the bee stayed in the same focal plane. This bee launched from the edge of the fountain and I was able to maintain focus as he launched but after the second shot, it was just a blur.

Focal Length 400mm, ISO 500, f/5.6, 1/2000
