    Default Thirsty Bees

    I put a dish with water and gravel about 20 feet from the hive but they don't touch it. They would rather fly 50 yards to my sprinkler head.

    I used a Canon 5D MK III with an EF 100MM f 2.8 Macro Lens.

    Continuing Buzz's reply the lens is about $550 now. But you don't need an expensive full frame camera like the 5D Mark III to get images like these. I took the shots in this thread today with my 60D which is only $600.
