Touchdown Imminent


Photo Information
At last we have some warm Summer weather in the UK and the Honeybees are out. They just love the large ornamental Poppies and this presents a great opportunity to catch them in flight.

Excellent shot. I had a Sigma 105mm Macro lens a couple of years back, but I found it to be far too contrasty. I should have tried harder.

Hi Pete, thanks for the comment. This has to be my favourite lens, it's so sharp and easy to focus.
