@00:17That video seems to really be something amazing! The way the insects were captured feeding on the flowers; they reminded me of cats with balls of yarn.

@05:29Wonderful! This footage would have been perfect for an insect documentary! I especially love the zoom-ins on the bees :heart:

@02:54Perfect timing for a macrocosmic pan... I was getting lost in your insect microcosm shots until you reminded my where all of this was taking place.

That's true, it is difficult. Not impossible, but difficult.
Thank you :)

Hell yes, he's huge. :D I tried to make more of this one, but he was here for less than a minute and as soon as I took this shot, he flew to the other side of the place, I had to run all the way around, and by the time I set up, he was gone.

@04:34They say only bumble bees can suck on this type of blossom. Bees do not have their proboscis long enough. I wonder if this bee got to some nectar after all that effort.

Shot over three days. Slowmotions (240fps) of bees, and other insects, as ants.
Manual focusing.
Yes, it's quite long. Sorry if I wasted your time.

I choose this category because it's quite experimental, even though it is my second try in filming bees, but the first try was really experimental, and not really pretty.

Oh, and watch it in DivX Hi-quality, the video will be more fluid. =)

An afternoon in the flowers. by *tbfdm Even when it is just experimental, I am amazed by the quality of this film. If you love macro and nature, you will love this. ( Featured by InpuUpUaut )
