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.
