And another bee and a butterfly.  The butterfly was taken with a 400 F5.6 with the 1.4X extender and handheld at 1/2000.  I was trying to catch a hummingbird when the butterfly got my attention.  I am eagerly looking forward to Spring and more insect images with my new 1DXM2.NZ1W1103.JPGNZ1W9393.JPG

This is a brilliant macro shot. I really like how the water droplets convey movement which makes the photo much more interesting to look at. Great processing too.
