Bumblebee in flight

I said I would try to get a half decent shot of a Bumblebee in flight. So when the sun came out over Norfolk this afternoon, I tried again – this time with more success...

Canon 1Ds Mk II, 1/4,000 sec, f/4, 200mm at ISO 1,000


  1. More than half decent Tim. Stopping the body in flight is one thing, but stopping the wings like you have that is really special.

  2. Hi Tim
    Great bumblebee shots. I have just returned from Dorset and saw a hovering 'bumblebee' turns out its was a Bee Fly, should have grabbed the camera but for once didn't.

  3. Hi. Thanks, both, for your kind comments.
