    Shockingly this was shot with my cell phone (HTC Amaze 4G) under the right conditions and using the macro setting and the flash. Sometimes you have to get lucky shooting with a cell phone.

    This was shot a few years back using a Canon 40D and a 70-200 F4L lens with extension tubes.

    Same camera and simular lens and gear for this one as well.

    I've been shooting bees in my backyard for a few years now using a wide array of different cameras.

    This one is from a week ago shot using my HTC Amaze 4G cell phone in macro mode with the flash on.

    These were shot using my older Canon 40D a few years back. I used a Canon 70-200 f4 L lens with extension tubes.

    Now that I have my own bee hive and colony, I'm hoping to get some great up close and personal shots of them doing their stuff!

    How so David? I'm an avid photographer and I shoot video with the same camera too (Canon 7D). The addition of my hive helps me further with l my hobbies. Gardening and photography.

    It was a joke. Clearly a poor one. The pictures are great.

    But you want Honey Bees! These ladies have a bright orange stripe on their abs.

    One of the wild bees that frequents my summertime garden.

    And this is what I'm a bit afraid of. We have these bugs here called Ambush Bugs and they do this to honey bees.
