The picture of ths Bumblebee on Sneezeweed Flower was taken at Stuyvesant Cove Park in New York City. This picture was taken with a Canon 100mm Macro lens on a Canon EOS 20D. I use the Canon 580EXII flash on the hotshoe of the camera as a fill flash.
I am finding the combination of the Canon EOS20D with the Canon 100mm Macro lens a winning combination for Macro shots. I can hand hold it and get in really close to the subject. Auto focusing is fast and accurate as long as the subject is not moving.
