    Handheld with your instamatic, I presume?

    Instamatic! Funny! Actually this took many failed attempts. I finally figured out how to do it. Pick a popular blossom that gets a lot of traffic. Set the camera on a tripod and manually focus somewhere in the flightpath. Set the camera on hi speed burst mode (my one does 11 fps). You need a remote shutter release. Wait. Wait longer. When a bee gets into the target zone - let it rip. If you are lucky - you get one picture with the bee in focus.
