Hover Flying

Canon 1D Mk IIn | Sigma 105mm macro | 1/400 sec | f/2.8 | 400

I watched these beautiful bee frauds dart around busily in the late summer sun, going about their business at what seemed like 100mph. I wanted to catch this shot because to that point I hadn't seen it done and as ever, I like a challenge. Two hours of patient sitting and watching, learning their behaviours and habits and I was ready. I got this shot on only my 3rd attempt - lady luck was watching over me - shooting out of hand with the camera set to burst. I rarely say I love a shot of my own but this is one of the few I can say that about, one of my all time faves.
