Flight of the Bumblebee, Lensbaby remix

Flight of the Bumblebee, Lensbaby remix

Shooting these guys was a real challenge with the old manual focusing lensbaby 2.0, but the harder it was the more rewarding it felt to actually get the shot i had in my minds eye.

I just checked the exposure of this and the last shot in lightroom, it says 1/250 for this one and 1/400 on the last, but the wings are more blurred on the last one and frozen here! Both were taken with the lensbaby using the f5.6 aperture ring. So i can only guess it has a lot to do with....
1. The strength, direction and angle of light
2. The speed at which the wings were beating at the time.
3. Your suggestions?

If you like this sort of thing, there are 24 more images in the new '2010 Lensbaby Poppy Pollination' gallery on my website

My suggestion or answer to your question: It was due to the photographer's expertise and experience.

Very nicely done. I hope others (whom I shall not name) learn to use the lensbaby as expertly as you. That way they won't be a danger to promoting permanent eye damage to Blog members. Thank you for the post.
