Bee Macro

Bees are usually not as wary about people as other insects like butterflies and dragonflies. This makes them a good subject for macro photography. There may not be as much variety between different bees that you get to photograph as the other insects but if you are patient you can get some wonderful flight shots. Just be careful because bees might not be as wary but they can get angry and you would not like them when they are angry.

Great moment to capture with camera!
Very focused as the bee was flying and this makes it even more difficult.
