Behind The Lens

Location
This image was take at the Rhode Island Botanical Gardens Aug of 2015. I was leaving and decided to check the outside area where I came across these flowers with all sorts of honey bee's, bumble bee's and wasp's around and landing on these flowers. So I decided to take some macros shots and was lucky enough to get this one handheld.
Time
August sunny afternoon
Lighting
Natural Lighting
Equipment
Canon 7d with a Canon 100 2.8 macro lens
Inspiration
I wanted to get a nice close up of the bee's that were flying around and landing on the flowers
Editing
I made my adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw, cropped in Photoshop, and used On1 for the final edit
In my camera bag
I carry 2 Canon 7d's, all Canon lens's from: 24-105, 17-40, 50 1.4, 100 2.8 macro, 70-200 2.8, 100-400, Extension tubes, 3 canon 600 flashes
Feedback
You need to have a little patience when trying to take macro shots especially shooting insects and take many
