8. "Burst"? Yes....
I had the camera set to multiple shot where I take several shots by pressing the shutter once. Like a machine gun. I may not be using the correct term. It's just what I call it.

I tried to do what you did. Just focus and wait, but in the snapshot above the flower things were swarming with bees and they started landing on me and the camera. Since I don't have a great fondness for bees and I had to get extremely close...

Regardless.. luck, whatever. You did an incredible job. That's a very cool photo.

I only managed one bee/flower shot that I liked. Since no one in my "test voting" group liked this one :( , I'll post it here. This was just a single HUGE bee that I sat on the ground and waited for. Everytime I tried to move to get a "face" shot the sucker would turn and give me an "ass" shot. Maybe the bee was trying to tell me something. :eyes:
