The Pollinators

A friend asked me, how do you get that close to your subject.  I answered, I sneak up on them.  Not really, plant a garden with flowers, they will come.  Standing still and shooting away, they get on the important business of pollination caring less about the photographer.  This shot was at a distance of about 14 inches with a 105mm macro lens stopped down to f/32 to get reasonable depth of field.  The shutter speed was 1/100 second.  Time and patience does pay dividends.
