Macro Wonders

Honey bee in flightMacro lenses give us a perspective like no other.  Like this one of a bee in flight.  But it’s darn difficult to get right.  Depth of field is extremely shallow.  You want the background out of focus but not the bee.  So, balancing subject to background distance and focal plane to subject distances is crucial.  Then you’ve got focusing, exposure and composition to consider.  Lastly, you need a co-operative bee to fly into the spot you have in mind.

It can take a while.
