Top Ten Honorable Mention: Bee!

This the second of this year's honorable mentions.  It's is a shot from June 21-- the first full day of summer.

I was playing around with my camera on the University of Scranton campus on a Sunday morning after work.  I need to improve my skills with a 50 mm lens.  Anyway, the bee fascinated me.  While the 50 mm lens is great for background blur, it's not really a lens for super duper up close work.  I tried a shot on every setting with every aperture and shutter speed until I got one that worked.

Good stuff, even if I say so, myself.

I intend to try more macro shots, properly equipped, in the new year.
