I am a beekeeper and have been exploring macro photography. This is a photo of a honeybee queen, surrounded by her attendants.



Canon 30D, 100-400L lens with screw-in closeup lens. Hand-held.

Good start and a nice photo. For macro work, keep a close eye on your DOF, camera movement, and exposure. For very close up work (<1') you DOF becomes very small.

I have my lens focused to infinity and the working range is about 18". DOF is an issue, especially when hand holding or even on a bi-pod. Take lots of pictures and maybe get one or two keepers!
