Underneath a honey bee

Not the cleanest of windows, but it was drizzling outside when I noticed this bees sitting on the window.

I thought I'd see if I could take a reasonably clear picture, and this is what I ended up with.

Re: Underneath a honey bee

Ellie I think you have done well to get such a clear pic of a bee as they never seem to stay still for long.

Cheers Sid

Hi Ellie -

I'm pleased you have shown this - my first look of the underneath of a live bee. You did very well with this.

Regards. Barr1e

Hi Ellie

Yes, its an unusual shot.. Which lens were you using - looks like a lot of magnification..

Re: Underneath a honey bee

Thanks.

I took it using the 14-42mm kit lens.

If the EXIF doesn't show for you - it was taken with my E-400 and handheld because there wasn't time to get the tripod out.

42.0mm
f8 (f5.6 was too shallow, deeper would have been even better but it didn't hang around for long)
1/100s
ISO 400
centre-weighted
+0.30 exposure bias
