I carry a camera pretty well everywhere I go. I have a choice (just look at my gear list!) but when I am not specifically shooting I usually take a smaller body and lighter lens - these days that is the Canon 80D with the 18-135 IS STM.
I am not often prone to taking close-up shots, but this one time I finally got to pass a flower with a bee busily working on it. I took the shots more in hope than expectation, and I must say I am impressed with how the gear handled the shot - both hand held.
