Taking macro photos from a honey bee or a bumblebee is not that difficult under a bright sun, allowing a fast shutter speed with a small aperture to create a large field of depth. Just sit in front of a flower which is visited regularly by them and take photos when they come along.
From a distance bumblebees and honey bees look the same, but from nearby there are differences which help in identifying the correct species:
These insects can be encountered everywhere; my famous spots are our garden and a nearby nursery. Most of the photos have been taken with a dedicated macro lens; either the Nikon 105mm or the Tamron 90mm lens.
