Kiwi bees / Photographing bees


#1

Not sure that this will be of much interest to the masses, but I’m just back from NZ and used an inordinate amount of camera space on Kiwi bees. Caught this native bumble bee with its tongue out.

Wondering if anybody had any great tips on capturing bees in photos? My “technique” is to take as many photos as possible and cross my fingers, but I’d like to improve that a bit.

I never managed to nail a good sharp image of a bumblebee while I was over there recently - this is the best I got.

I think taking “as many photos as possible” is my way with photography too though! I was thinking that a monopod might help me get steady shot, but they were moving around way to quickly even for that.
