I’m not a morning bee

Canon 400D, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens – 1/2 sec, f/11, ISO 200

I took a couple of macro shots a few weeks ago but all the insect images went in the bin as they were out of focus or blurred. This bee was still in the process of warming up for the day so didn’t move about much.

My only issue with the image is that the conversion to Jpeg hasn’t gone that well – in particular it looks over sharpened and the colour of the catch light has gone quite blue compared to the original Photoshop image. I may end up reprocessing it to see if I can fix the flaws.
