Apis Mellifera, Limonium perzeii
superbe photo sur le vif
Nice bukeh and detail
Is it taken with Macro 60 mm Nikkor?
Thanks for your visit Mohammad. Yes, I took this with a 60 mm macro lens (AF-S Micro Nikkor 60 mm 1:2.8G), which is one of my two favorite lenses. There are always plenty of bees collecting pollen in these flowers. I hand-hold the camera about 30 to 45 cm away from the flowers, and take about 100 to 200 photos of the bees using the continuous shooting mode while using autofocus to keep the bees in focus. About 10% of the photos are decent, and most of them show the bees' rear ends. I couldn't do this with film or my old Kodak Easyshare - I love digital SLR's!
