Macro Monday – Bumblebee

Another installment of Macro Monday. This image clearly was not taken this weekend, it is a reminder of better, wormer times. I was playing that day with an assortment of Tamron lenses at the local club meeting. And out of all of their macro offering, this was taken with a zoom lens :).
Bumblebees are not that easy to photograph, as they are constantly on the move. With changing frame from horizontal to vertical, insect flying from flower to flower, getting sharp image with focus right where you want it is not a trivial task. It is very rewarding to come back with a keeper, especially on such beautifully contrasting background.
