Re: May flowers attract more than bees
Thanks again Solarbeez... I'm blushing now.
The sharpness comes from using a Canon 7D with some of their best lenses and then upping the ISO so that I can use a smaller aperture which increase the depth of field, thus making more of the subject in focus. But then the background is still out of focus because I am so close to the subject matter and the point of focus is so near the lens that everything beyond that is super soft and creamy. Its a function of using a DSLR as a video camera and the much larger video sensor that DSLRs have in them. Again, thanks for the kind words!
I think the creature you captured is what I would call a hover fly. They are furry like a bee, look like a bee and eat the pollen and nectar like a bee, but they are flies. We have them here in Colorado as well, though they look a little different from what you captured. They are wonderful to shoot because they are so **** stationary in the air! I have another short video of a hover fly that I called, "Hover." Duh!
