Pollinating bee

For this image, I needed two “advanced” shooting techniques. ;) First, it was really bright and sunny day, so I waited for a sun to disappear in clouds. The second, which helped in getting this image really sharp, was standing stable, still and… to stop my breath. I had low ISO to avoid any noise, to which my camera seems to be prone if the light is not too perfect even i daylight. The short shutter speed was a lucky result of the open aperture, which combined with long focal length put the background leaves out of focus. Overall, the outcome I was hoping for.
I tried and took several images, and the first one turned out to be the sharpest and most interesting at the time.
