Great shot and hard for me to pick between this and your other shot. Teddy Bear Bumble bees are a favourite of mine. Only reason this didn't win was the cropped legs, otherwise a brilliant composition with great lighting.

Behind The Lens

Location
The great thing about macro the location is less important than the subject, this one was in the back garden.
Time
This one was at Lunchtime.
Lighting
When this close I'm using a flash, the Canon MT24 with diffusers is amazing
Equipment
Canon 5d mkiii canon MP65 lens and a MT24 twinflash. Hand held as the lens doesn't have a focus you have to move it back and forward and the subjects move about
Inspiration
I just loved the colours
Editing
Not much required
In my camera bag
I usually have a big prime lens for wildlife with my macro kit, otherwise it just depends on what I'm planning to shoot.
Feedback
Move really slowly, get used to using manual mode, and you will need a flash, the depth of field is pretty small at f16, at f2.8 its almost impossible.
