Insects in Action
After capturing birds in flight, I had to try capturing a bumble bee, or wasp in flight too.
I have seen so many insects in flight on the internet and was curious as to how they were captured.
Whilst in a my cast my mobility was very limited, so I went on my electric scooter to a small wild garden close to where I live.
I had to get close, so it had to be the Macro lens and I used my settings for birds in flight.
Using this method I just waited for the 🐝 s to fly in and used the high speed burst mode with a zone focus area and multi metering.
Checking my LCD I quickly realised I had to up my shutter to 1/4000 to capture the whole body of the insect. The results were better.
Amazing flight shots on my first real attempt.
Yes there were many out of focus but I was hoping just for one.
Having a pick of at least 20 is just so rewarding, but the skill still needs to accompany the camera equipment.
