[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Thanks Goutham..
Iím not quite motivated to comment my own photos, .. cause they donít spur much interest. Fort this kind of captures the achievement is almost always a coincidence, .. you dominate very few things in fact. Bee moves very fastly and totally unpredictably. Opt for spot metering with min AF point (or AF spot) mode. Note also that I command AF with dedicated button (programmable green button on Pentax) not the half press mode on shutter. Choose an aperture as fast as you can (anyway beyond 1/2000s) and focus the spot to which the bee would come up as precisely as you can and try to shoot it as much as you can with continuous shutter mode. Deactivate "lens correction" in your menu options in order to rise the number of shots per second. So, maybe you will end up to get a couple of shot almost correctly taken, .. as this one. I hope that'll help anyone interested by this kind of captures.
