    Hi everybody :)
    I took many photos for active bees that day!
    When I was about to give up getting a good one this
    one appeared and it really attracted me to shoot it
    and it turned to be the best among them all.

    Very nice shot. Close up macros like that can be very difficult to get.

    Thank you so much CalebSchmerge. Indeed it was, but I guess I was lucky with this one :)

    I know that with things I want to turn out I take as many as I can and hope for the best.

    Did you auto focus or manually focus the lens for that shot?

    It was manually focus, usually I get closer slowly and as much as the lens allows me.

    That sounds similar to how I use my 105mm. Its a very fun lens. This thread makes me want to get it out - but I don't really have anything around right now that would make for a good picture.

    Hi CalebSchmerge....Alot of fun with this lens, yesterday my daughter found a spider in her room she caught it and brought to me to photograph it, you can almost shoot anything and it will give unexpected results.
    Thank you :)

    I have the same doubt :D I am not good in differing between insects
    but something beautiful about this one the housefly doesn't have it.
    Also it was sucking from the flower I don't remember flies doing
    anything like that! Thank you for the compliment.

    I really hate spiders, and while that is a fantastic shot, it totally grosses me out.
