For several days, off and on, this Wool Carder Bee was nesting in my Lavender. Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F14, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. Technique: It's much easier to get close to them in the morning when the temperature is causing their metabolism to tank.
