Some items from my archives. All single shots, handheld, taken with a reversed 18-55 kit lens.

A bumblebee. I think.

Thanks! It's a challenging lens to use reversed, but when it works, the results are worth the challenge.

Nice, the bee is not a bumble one, but likely a species of Andrena

I figure I'm lucky enough to get the "bee" part right! ;)
