    Another frame of a bee feeding on a flower that I injected with corn syrup. I'm holding onto to flower to keep it steady, and at some point she was actually standing on my fingers. Shot at three times life size and, like all of my images, uncropped so the scene is only about 7mm wide.

    Nice shot! You must have rock-steady hands... I have trouble with inanimate objects!

    Thanks folks :)

    Just holding onto the flower with my left index finger and thumb, and then resting the lens on that same hand so I can have the camera and the subject on the same "platform". Tutorial here.
