Bees are mysteriously disappearing all over the U.S. This worries me. What will we eat? ~~ Photograph taken by reversing the lens and holding it up to the camera body. Focusing is achieved by moving closer or further away from the subject. Tricky business when the subject’s a bee!

    Beautiful shot- also sounds like a difficult and interesting technique you used there.

    Thanks Jared and Antoine! I forgot to mention, I didn’t alter the image at all – this is straight from the camera.

    I’m glad you enjoy it – some people I’ve shown this shot to seemed a little freaked by the, well, insect-ness of it. :-)

    it’s great.. the colours are the first thing, for me, and then the detail is awesome. Well done!
