Bee Macro Close Up Pictures

On a beautiful like today, Labor day, a perfect day to practice with my Macro lens taking close up pictures of the insects in our garden. And since the Mint has plenty of blossom, there are bee's flying off and on to grab the honey out of the flowers.

See here the results of around 100 shots with my Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens, taken with a Canon 5D.

Bee Close Up Photo’s

Last weekend I checked the lavender plants in front of our house. It was a busy come and go of the bees collecting honey. Dozens of worker bees were flying between the purple flowers to suck the nectar out of the flowers. I decided it was time for me to try to make some close up shots with my Macro lens. Check out my Bee Close up pictures.

All of the pictures below are made with the Canon 5D 12.8 mega pixels, and the Canon 100m F2.8 Macro lens. Anybody who would like to reprint these pictures, or use these commercially, please use the contact form to write me.

Little Men in Macro

Playing with my camera and macro lens, I just saw a great object to take some experimental photo’s off, the two little happy men.

The above picture was taken with a Canon 5D, and a Canon 100mm f2.8 USM Macro lens.

Winnie The Pooh Burning Candle

I tried to make a time lapse series of a burning Winnie The Pooh candle we had. However, I failed to set the lens on manual focus, so not all pictures are zoomed in at the same sharpness or focal length.

Description

With a dollop of honey on his paw, and a smile on his face, Pooh sits happily amongst overflowing honey pots. If your party is a Pooh party, this candle deserves center stage on your cake!

  • 2 1/2" W x 3" H

  • Exposure 0.3
  • Aperture: f/2.8
