Thanks!!! Had great light and there were a LOT of bees buzzing around the bush! Was going for the one on the flower and the other guys just came by ... couldn't have asked for better timing :D

I would shoot this with the video feature on my camera then go through frame by frame and pic out the image i want then edit that one. Its better than trying to time your shot. But use a very high shutter speed and low ISO.
ntgreen
ntgreen March 02, 2015
I will have to try that ... do you get as good a resolution? Are the shots as clear and sharp?

Most newer cameras have fabulous HD to shoot videos. I do a lot of equestrian photography. It's very important to capture the action at specific moments of the gaits. 99% of the time, being a rider myself, I get the shot I need. Some people have me shoot video of their sales horses. I can't do stills and vids at the same time.. so I do their videos of their sales horse, edit them, add music to match the tempo of the gaits, and then.. I stop action frame-by-frame in my video editor "Movavi Video Suite 18", and I can snap a pic of that and bring it into my photoshop cc 2020. I was rather amazed at how crystal clear it looked. They really need very little touch up. GOOD LUCK! This is a wonderful photo by the way!
