Busy Bees

Had another opportunity to test out my rokinon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens I purchased. Justing going to showcase some of the photos here.

The final bee picture.  I can see the challenges of macro photography.  You have such a narrow depth of field and you have to close the aperture down to increase the depth of field but reduces the amount of light.  You can compensate some by increasing the ISO, but that impacts the pictures quality.  I definitely see why macro photographers use flash now.  It makes total sense with the added bonus of darkening the background which further increases the focus on your subject.  Hopefully I can pick up a flash soon.
