This is a tricky lens to use. Best to use a tripod and a macro flash for smaller apertures and a larger DOF. At f/3.5 on 180mm the DOF is too small for bug work.

Lucked out here though, this was handheld without flash. there were a few missed foucus out takes though.

This is what I like, some action! A little poetry in motion, a little luck. "D

Nice combination of motion in the back end and great sharpness up front!

Nice capture and perfect timming. those little ones move so fast is not easy to get a shot like this one ;)

Great timing, and also good use of the long focal length to be able to get this without spooking the bee. It takes a lot of shots to get one this nice of a bee. The focus on the eyes is perfect, not an easy thing at 180 and 3.5.

He certainly fits the old adage busy as a bee given the speed of those wings. I much prefer them in motion than stopped - nicely done.

I can almost hear the wings buzzing! Beautiful DOF on the bee's head.

that's the stuff! great focus and wing movement. I'd frame it and put it on my wall, or just your refrigerator
