Today's selection of bees and flowers intermingle a variety of Canon L-series lenses with an EOS 5DIII. All images were captured in RAW and processed in Adobe Lightroom 6 with additional noise processing in Topaz DeNoise 6. Use the URL links that are the titles of each image for access to the EXIF details.

To my eyes, the differences are the quality of the pose rather than the resolving power of a macro lens vs an extended zoom.

These images date from 2014 through 2018, all from roughly the same field of wildflowers managed by the Chicago Park Service in Lincoln Park along Lake Michigan.

Regarding pose, my preferred view of bees / insects is eye level with the insect approaching the camera.

The camera / lenses are mounted to a tripod with either a ball-head or gimbal.

When the flower blossoms, the bee will come.

Thank you Ronnie, Gary, Architect1776, Loren, Carol, Ken, Vince, Bill, Joe, John, Jim! We're on the edge of having a serious problem drought here in Chicago. The rain yesterday was the first in all of June and there's nothing of substance in the next week's schedule. I haven't been out to this field of wildflowers to see how / if anything is happening this year.
