Usually bee flies are real hard to catch in pixels once the sun is out, but here's a rather big and furry one that made things difficult for me by being TOO laidback and willing to pose.

First it decided my rear end was a perfect spot for enjoying the surrounding scenery. As I tried to contort myself into a "bum shot" position it relaxedly flew down and landed on my (unbearably black) camera bag, then it buzzed up on my nose, after that the focus ring of my macro lens and finally my hand. Which hand? The right hand of course - right on the back of my index finger. After quite a bit more of lefthanded contortionism I finally managed to catch this with reasonably correct focus -



a57 + 1st gen sigma macro 50 f2.8 (fired with my left pinky)


The problem is that the subtle detail of the fur and tinted-wings in a species like this cannot be appreciated from the side or in counterlight. After stretching several more ligaments it finally occurred to me that I might trick it into landing on a nearby trail marker instead. Walked up to that slowly, tilted my right hand and there it went sitting!
