Apis Florea or Dwarf Honey Bee are tiny and they are being used in Thailand and Cambodia to produce honey. They are wild honey bees found in the Southeastern Asia and they make open nests and small colonies.
I have not tried using flash or extra lighting to my macro photography and soon it will be done that way. The importance of light shows the glitters on the eyes of the insects and bugs that I am taking photographs with; also, more details and exposure of some fantastic colours. For now, this is it and yet I am happy about this sharing and seeing the macro world around us which I am really captivated now.
Finding this bee on small flowers at the national park was a joy and yet very difficult to take some shots since they also fly from one flower to another. The right timing is important. Bees are very important to our planet’s survival and we have to give value and get involved to conservation efforts and activities.
