Sadly it would be physically impossible for any bee or other insect to get stuck in my hair :D

Hope it didn't hurt too much !

Trouble is that once you've been stung once, the poison sack stays there, pumping pheromones out to attract the guard bees, so a hasty retreat was called for as I was wearing shorts and a tee shirt!

Slightly worse than a nettle sting to be honest, you get used to it when you keep them!

I think I'll use the 300+tc for the next attempt so I can try to get a better DoF and shutter speed to get the wings (this was at 1/100th and they're invisible) oh, and a little further away!
