365 Challenge #252 - a busy bee

It was a blah day here in Brisbane - cloudy and looked like it was going to rain for most of the day. But it was a great day for playing with the macro lens on a walk around Boondal Wetlands. There were bugs, flowers and all manner of minutiae to be photographed.

This bee was busy doing its thing. Am loving the combination of the tamron macro lens and the 5D - when I blew this photo up to 100%, I could actually see individual hairs on the bees head. Who'da thunk!


  1. Hey Simonne, thanks! I love this lens, and the world of macro. I started off with screw in filters and the 500D close-up lens, then bit the bullet and bought an actual prime lens. Now I spend my weekends chasing bugs and flowers LOL :).
