#5 Alate insects

This update is little later than always, because I had exam (fingers crossed).
Today I want to show you few of my photos with flying insects. It's very hard to keep its sharpeness and usually only one from 10-20 photos (of one object of course) is good enough to publish, so you must be very patience to make macro photographies of this little bastards. But trying and trying again is worth of final effect. Here we go:

Bee (or something very similar):



Red-tailed bumblebee (Bombus lapidarius):

Six-spot Burnet (Zygaena filipendulae):

Burnet once again,  running away, but I like this photo:





Tomorrow or at Sunday I will show you how to make diffuser dedicated for compact camera, somebody asked if I could do that ;)
