Apricot Flowers and Bees

I have appreciated and enjoyed the results of my macro work with the 7D and my favorite lens, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L macro lens.  However, I was really excited to try the lens on the 6D and sure enough, the images are stunning compared to anything I've done before.  I am now able to achieve what I've always wanted to in close up photography.  I did have to crop all these shots, most 100%, because of the bees!  But, that shows even more how clearly and resolutely the 6D and 100mm work in tandem.  Even cropped, the images are sharp.





From Top to Bottom: 100mm, f/8, 1/1000, ISO 500; f/3.5, 1/60, ISO 50; f/11, 1/1000, ISO 1250
