Shhh! I'm hunting flowers ...

On the ride back from school today I stopped in a field of flowers to see if I could snap a few macro shots.  This little guy was pollinating away right under my nose.  The field behind our school is rich with insects and a great place for macro photography ... don't worry, I checked for ticks afterwards!

I used AI Servo mode with the center focus point selected and kept it centered on the little guy's head.  The camera was set to Av mode with an aperture of f2.8 on my 60mm macro lens.  The photo was cropped in Lightroom.  I can't figure out if his whole body is covered in pollen or if that is the colour of his sensilla.
