Day 159 – Bees

A look at different insects in the garden and this I struggled with, I really did not manage any great shots, I switched to AlServo, I used my macro lens, but I could not really capture the Bee how I wanted to.

The bees was on my chives, I was nice and close using aperture priority, but something was not right… I think I needed a higher shutter speed… but I did not want to loose any more depth of field, and I did not want the shot to be too grainy…. so a tricky balancing act.

I think I may need to revisit this sometime…. or let someone else photograph bees!
