    If you don't know where to look, you might not even see the bee in the first photo...2nd photo it's cropped way up / visible.
    Very windy, everything swaying, bumped shutter from 1/100 to 1/200...should have bumped to 1/320.
    ( but the testing was for the lens, not the operator, LOL...and the lens is doing great )

    Canon FDn 24-35 / 3.5-L, NEX-7, Manual Mode, Daylight WB, Spot Metering, ISO100, 1/200, F5.6

    Not bad at all, you have to be quick to catch these guys.

    Yes, but the blossoms it's on are a bit soft too...these roadside "Tickseed Sunflowers" are 3 feet tall with spindly little stalks, and with the wind gusting they were swaying back and forth a foot or more...tried to focus and time the shot when the sway reached the end of predictable travel...almost got it.
    But I was out putting the newly acquired lens through it's paces and have enough shots now under different conditions to know its a keeper...sharpness, color rendition, and everything functions perfectly for it to be a 30+ year old manual lens.
