Nice catches, John. Would be even better if the backgrounds were smoother :)

Thanks for showing.

Being able to capture the bee in flight is already a tough job. BG can use PS.

Very Nice catch.

Were you less than one meter away from the subj thus the f5.6 to increase the dof?

Nice shots!

It's really hot that few days huh, my neck felt like burning under the sun. Wanted to use a macro lens & tripod initally but ends up gave up and just took snapshots with the much faster usm lens.

But not up to my expectation...maybe misleading by the advertisement...I expect they form the word "Chun" with the flower...endup only form a few shape of butterflies...can't even bother to shoot elsewhere as there r a lot of tourist from India & China...instead of flower, I chose to shoot insect...Bee.
