Busy as a …

Back in 2013 I did a post about my friend the Beekeeper.You can read that here. I’ve always had a fascination for bees and often sit and watch them work their way over my lavender and other plants in my garden.

I sat there a few days ago with my Nikon Z6 and a 300mm lens, and this little guy shows up and places himself in profile. The shot is handheld, I supported the lens on my knees. It’s heavily cropped too, but as I wrote in the original article I never did buy that Macro lens. Although I hear that Nikon have now produced a 100mm Z-mount lens to a reasonable price. So who knows?

Just for a bit of fun here this the same shot in black and white. I’m still playing around in Capture One

  1. Very nice, especially the black and white one. I like photographing insects too, but the little 40mm macro lens I’ve got is a bit limiting. Still, it’s nice to experiment.

    1. Thanks David. You would have to get closer or crop like I did. I never thought I’d use a 300mm as a macro lens. I first thought of it taking pictures of butterflies in your garden two year ago.
