The bumblebee was hard to catch. Whenever I tried to get him the bugger would fly away. Got one finally. 

No photoshop.

Nice. You got him perfect. I'm really surprised that 1/250 was fast enough to mostly stop his wings.

Yeah, it took a bit of trial and error but surprisingly the speed worked out pretty well.

I'd say perfectly really. I like the clarity but with the hint of motion, especially on the left side.
