Macro photography by Paul Woods

Natural light – Honey bee on rose with rain droplets near the Feale River and bridge in Listowel Ireland.

Nothing about this shot was staged ( not that I do not stage things ) I had a request for bee images from a lady at an exhibition a few weeks earlier so I spent a while walking the river bank photographing the flora and fauna.

Taken with a Canon 1ds mk ii and 35-80mm with reverse ring at iso 1600 and f 16
