Bee here today

I got a close up lens as a birthday present last week. It’s a Marumi Achromat +3 and I use it with my Canon 70 – 200 4L. I found it quite difficult to use macro stuff, as you need very good light (or a ringflash) and a almost not moving target.
Today I shoot this bee at my brother-in-laws garden. I was lucky with this one, because the bee was not moving and the natural light was perfect today. I am really happy with the result of this closeup lens, even if it’s not as good as a real macro lens. By the way, the plant the bee is sitting at is a very special one and it is around 30 years old – but I unfortunately forget it’s name.
