First Bee of Spring 2 by PhotuBug First Bee of Spring 2 by PhotuBug
Vertical format!!

First true macro photo I've done (of an insect anyway)

First bee this whole year, I still thinks it's too cold, as he seemed very lethargic.

Canon T1i, 55-250mm IS and Raynox DCR 250.

F16
Iso 1600
1/40s handheld with no flash

Critique from the Extreme-Macro group [link]

I love the low angle on this one -shooting from the subject's perspective is a great way to bring out the personality in the critter. I also like the light in this one, warm (to saturate the colors) and diffused (pleasant specular highlights).

Unfortunately there is very little of the subject in focus. It would help if you had locked the bottom of the frame in place once the leading leg was in focus, and then tilted the top of the camera deeper into the frame. Then the area of acceptable focus would start at that leading leg and fall over the top of the bee's head at an angle. It might have been possible to get most of that leading antenna in focus as well just by tilting the top of the camera.
What do you think?

Great for a flashless handheld!
