A Study Of Bees

Sydney, NSW

On my first visit I tried to capture the bees in these pink flowered trees, and it was a miserable failure. I used the lens wide open at f2.8 which resulted in no depth of field and mostly blurry bees. The second visit I stopped down to around f8 which proved to be the best balance between depth of field and shutter speed to freeze these guys!
