Honeybee #31 by ryzst

ryzst: Thank you both. I really appreciate that.

Shooting small, random events like this is why I enjoy macrophotography.

ryzst: Thank you for the nice comments.

It takes some time to retrain your vision for macrophotography & how to achieve good results. For me, the reduced depth of field (DOF) continues to be the main challenge. And if that wasn't enough, I bought the EF 12 II Extension Tube for the 100mm lens to increase magnification past the 1X it can currently achieve. That will decrease the DOF even more and also eliminate focusing to infinity. Ideally, I'd like to be able to shoot about 0.5-2X
