‘Mirrorless Monday’ with Colin Franks & the Panasonic G3


‘Mirrorless Monday’ with Colin Franks & the Panasonic G3

How many photographers can call themselves lucky enough to have nabbed a flawless shot of an insect in mid-flight? Colin Franks certainly can, as you can see from the beautiful up-close photograph he sent us for Mirrorless Monday. It features a bee hovering around a tantalizing Spanish Lavender on a sunny day. The flower is very sharp and detailed, but it is the fact that the buzzing bee is so clear and crisp that makes this photograph exceptional.

As with every photo Colin has shared so far, it was taken with his beloved Panasonic G3 and the 100-300 lens!

You can see more of Colin’s work on his Facebook page, where you can also become a fan. He has lots of fabulous photos posted, so do leave him a comment!
