Description

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/60, ISO 200) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 37mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX (-2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I injected 2:1 sugar syrup into the Basil flower to give her a reason to let me get close. I shaded the subject so that the flash would be the only significant light source on the bee. The dragged the shutter to help expose for the natural light in the background.
