Bees and Broccoli with a Canon 7D
The pollinators have started to arrive. My flowering broccoli was center stage for the few pollinators left alive after a very cold winter. I believe these are green bees and carpenter bees. I shot them with a Canon 7D and edited with Avid Express Pro HD. I shot most of this handheld with a 100 2.8 and a 50 1.4. The green bees are about the size of your pinkie finger nail, very small. It was a good challenge with mixed results. The new DSLR cameras take great footage but the user interface is a challenge. Have you ever tried to follow focus on something as small as your pinkie? As with all new tools the fun and frustrating part is learning.
