Was surprised to find this critter in November, but it has been unusually warm this year. Taken in my "studio" (patio table), I managed to get three frames before the bee woke up and took off (I think that the flash triggered it to get active).

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x, 3x, and 3.5x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC). These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held. I used an artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Thanks!

Bacoli, Italy. Our daytime high is around 18C still (64 freedom units Wink ).

Do you think it hatched?! Seems really odd to see a male this late in the year.
