Week 1 - Day 3 - May 3, 2009 "Bee"


Since it is spring, and there are a lot of flowering plants, I thought it would be good to take some photos of the flowers. In the process of doing so, I began to notice the bees, and thought it would be more fun following them.

After about an hour of chasing bees around the lawn, and having to keep our dog, Tank, from biting them, I took this shot.

Lessons:
  • Bees are Camera Shy. Sure when you're walking around the yard they are all over the place. But get a camera set up with a 3x Macro Filter, and they all disappear.
  • I need to remember to following the lessons from my first post. I'm still not shooting RAW shots. I'm resetting the camera right now. (There, hopefully I'll keep it that way.)
Photo details, Exposure time 1/800, Aperture f/4.0, ISO 100, Sigma Lens 70-300mm with a 3X Filter.

This was the first week winner in the viewer poll.
