Back in September I harassed a Bee & a Crane Fly.
One while he worked, the other while he did push ups on branches in the early evening.
Someone will have to explain to me why Crane Flies do that push up thing. Are they limbering up for something intense that occurs after sundown?
NINE PHOTOS TELL THE STORY.
These were taken while I was testing my equipment in as many different conditions as I could think of, convincing myself that I needed new gear.
While the Bee shots didn’t turn out as well as I would like, my Olympus E-620 held up fairly well.
No doubt I’ll get another chance to capture a bee at work.
I had planned to go outside & simply shoot the blossom of the tree.
Getting some characters into the shots made them far more interesting & less likely to put people to sleep.
