Bumblebees Part 2

At the start of the year, I had some spare time on a very nice and sunny day.

I haven't quite finished work for the year yet, but did have today off. After some miserable weather earlier in the week, the sun decided to come out today..... and so did the bumblebees :)

Now that I have the 7D mkII, I figured I'd have another go at photographing them. I left ISO on auto and cranked up the shutter speed.

I tried a few different focus/tracking options, but I still think the small number of AF points is working best.

So here is the best of what I got.... lots more colour and it was definitely easier to keep the bumblebee in focus whilst it was in flight.
