Limited for the moment with the gear at hand, an Oly E-510 with the ZD 50-200 lens at 200 on a Leica-R shoulder stock, I decided to try to improve my technique.  I locked the shutter speed at 1/1000 to cut down on movement and force the aperture wide open. I then raised the ISO to 400 to keep the exposure within range, knowing I could lose some sharpness.  Then I went looking for victims.

I found this young bee giving me the eye from one of my neighbors' nice orange flowers.


Then this Common Buckeye showed up.


Both shot at ISO 400, 1/1000 at f/3.5.

I'm pleased with the results.
