Long-horned Bee       ©2014 ysal
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       11th place, 74 points
1/400s, f5.6, ISO 250, 132mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Slightly adjusted exposure and color, sharpened, cropped and resized.       Extra Info: At first it looked like a honeybee, but closer look revealed the beautiful green eyes and the long antenna telling me it was a long-horned bee.

    Thank you for all the kind comments, everyone!

This was shot with my FZ150 + Raynox 250. I knew I had to get a side view because the DOF is so very shallow with the Raynox 250.

    Like this, good close up. IMO would remove some of the bottom up to the purple stems.

    Beautiful clarity in this tight depth of field capture. I love the focus in the eyes and mouth. I can't imagine how long it took to get this perfect shot but I love it. The depth and clarity are amazing. Nice job.
