This wild blackberry (bramble family) was blooming in Burnidge Woods, a Kane County Forest Preserve located just outside Elgin, Illinois. I set up my tripod, opened the lens to its maximum aperture and started to shoot rapidly because there were a number of small bees flying around. Sometimes, to capture a flying bee it is best to shoot rapidly as they move quickly and fly in and out of sharp focus as the depth of field is reduced by using the maximum aperture. I selected this image as the bee and the object of focus were in alignment. The Bokeh effect from wide open shooting, especially with flying insects is risky but when it works it pays off.

I processed the raw file using Photomatix Pro 5 and Detail 3 from Topaz Labs to produce this hdr image.
