My "Summer Garden" series would not be complete without photos of bees feeding on flowers, of course. These little furry balls with wings are quite patient models, but not quite as spectacular as the butterflies.

I also tried some "action shots": at 1/1000 sec and ISO 800, I focused on the insect, waited, and, as soon as it started flying, I pressed the shutter release, hoping that the trajectory would be parallel to the focus plane. A few shots came out quite nice, but the success rate was not very high. I'm sure I'll be trying again next Summer.
