Really cool to see the thread reignite! This queen tree bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum) got lost in my house. I took her portrait before releasing her. First: 9-shot focus stack with 100L, then two closer ones with the MP-E.
Current equipment: 5Ds, 5D mark III, 50D, 24-105L, MP-E, 100L macro, 500L IS II; 1.4xIII + 2x III extenders; 600EX-RT.
Former equipment includes: 300D; EOS-M, EF-M 18-55, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, EF 35 f/2 IS, 70-200L f/4 non-IS and f/2.8L IS II, 85L II, Sigma 180 macro, 200L 2.8, 400L 5.6

"Pollinating the Milkweed"

EOS 7D, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM @ 400mm, 1/640 s, f/5.6, ISO 100

"Bumbling the Cohosh"

EOS 5D Mark II, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, 1/640 s, f/9, ISO 1600

I guess it's been a while since I've shot any images of bees, since the only piece of gear I have left from what was used above is the 100L Macro.  Not too many flowers open yet, but we're getting there here in New England.
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses

Nice shots! Bees are good for when the birds aren't behaving :)

Here's a Metallic Green Bee (Agapostemon virescens?) I spotted last year.  Shot with the 5D III and 100L.

We have about 10 million honey bees, or it seems that many.  A local bee keeper brought out several pallets of hives earlier this summer.  They range for several miles, but we see them on every flower and weed.  On a warm day, there is a haze of them around and over the hives that I can see from our house 300 ft away.

I'll give it to you guys... bees (especially wasps) give me the heebeegeebees...  This is the closest i'd ever want to be to one of these, but great pics and kudo's on your willingness to get these shots.
