Thanks for the kind words. No macro rail just a Bogen tripod #3021 with a Manfrotto HD701 fluid head, EOS 7D, 100mm IS USM L macro lens 1x. Settings were 1/10 @ F11 manual focus AWB. The bee was completely stationary.
Speaking of Macro Rails, the cool thing about the quick release plate on this head is that you can slide it back and forth by a few inches if I ever needed the macro rail "feel". It also has an emergency brake in case you forget to lock the plate in place. Fantastic product.
