One of the reasons for getting my macro close-up lenses (under $20 on EBay) was to shoot insects. I know, it sounds weird.
This is my first attempt. This bee was helping out in a rhododendron bush right next to my deck.
This is a little tougher than it looks because the bee is constantly in motion and the lens produces an extremely shallow depth-of-field.
I’ll be trying more insects as the weather continues to warm.
