Goofing off trying my hand at macro. Caught this carpenter bee buzzing around my deck.

Thanks.

 

Yea i took a lot of shots and got maybe 4 really good ones out of all them.Hardest part for me was getting the focus point on something that small that is moving.

Wow! That's not easy to do with a macro lens. Or ANY lens, for that matter. Great shots.

I don't know much about photography but I did take a class in high school and I know enough to understand how difficult macro can be! Great shot!

Those are really spectacular shots. What lens were you using?

I took these with a Canon 100mm F2.8 macro lens on a Canon 6D camera.
