Some great shots in this thread.

Unfortunately, being someone who is terrified of bees and wasps, I now have the creeps!!

Wouldn't catch me trying to take this type of photo! Try me running in the other direction!

lol!

I usually run away too lmao, but if they aren't flying around I can take photos of them. If they start to fly I freak out.

Why does the MFD of the 100-400L have to be so long... couldn't get close enough to it so this is quite a crop.

Thank you Popo - I am experimenting with using "normal" flash rather than the ring flash, the ring flash struggles with power.

Interesting you should say that. I've only taken my ringflash in the field once and I'm not convinced it gives much better results than body flash unless you're so close the lens is obscuring the light. Haven't gone as far as external flash yet... but f/32 certainly was pushing the body flash to its limits.
