Manually focus on the flower, then put your camera in continuous shooting mode and start firing as the bee approaches. You'll get a lot of shots that are out of focus as it flies towards and away from you, but there will also be some shots where the insect is right on the focal plane and very sharp. (If you use a tripod and remote trigger, all the better!)


    Great job!

    Thank you!
    Tried that during lunch today, I sat myself down and let the birds come to me. Worked really well. Thanks for the tip!

    That bird must have been really close if you shot at 85mm! What did you tempt it with
    I have been using bird seed but they still like to keep their distance.

    Salt and vinegar crisps... it was what was to hand.. these birds are really cheeky though, they come pinch food off your table if youre not careful.
