European Wool Carder Bee

Post by Dalantech »

I spotted this European Wool Carder Bee snoozing in some flowers around sundown and waited until the next morning to photograph it. But it was 23C (73F) and it didn't take long for it to wake up and fly off.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to roughly 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI and Clarity in that order.

Note: In the tech specs I always say "These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held.". I'm not bragging, I simply got tired of answering the same questions all the time.

Very nice. I understand how it is practical to just say the conditions in the post!
