Summer Bees

This weekend saw me at a family barbecue near Chepstow.  It was great to catch up and see the children playing together in the warm summer sunshine.  Of course, I took a camera – and when I spotted the honey bees doing their thing amongst the oregano and marjoram I just had to get in amongst it!

The photos were taken with my Canon EOS 7D and a Canon EF 100 mm f2.8L Macro IS USM Lens.

The cropped sensor on the 7D effectively made the 100mm a 160mm macro, and although I suspect that my 7D is back focusing slightly at the moment (which is really noticeable at macro focal lengths) I got lucky and I’m pleased with some of the shots.

I really must get around to doing some calibration…

Happy hunting!
