I pushed myself way out of my comfort zone today. I photographed this bee with a 50mm 1.8 and a 4x close-up filter. My hand was literally inches from this creature and but I stuck to it and got this rim lit shot. I spent about an hour waiting at this flower waiting for a bee to land on it. After a couple of breaks to walk around and see things from different angles I set up for a shot that would produce spectacular lighting. Shooting towards the sun I sat quietly with my camera extended at arm’s length and waited.
