Catching a bee landing or taking off can be as simple as waiting – setting up in front of a particular flower where a bee was foraging, and waiting for it to jump away. Chances are you’ll miss – a lot. eventually patience pays off!
You can see a slight bit of motion blur on the legs, which adds to the action. The leg appears both clear and blurred due to two exposures – one created by the ambient light and one created by the ring flash I used to make this image.
Fun fact about bees: Bees feed on the nectar produced by flowers, which gets transformed into honey inside the bee’s digestive system by special enzymes. Its then dried and stored for future consumption.
