I can recommend the following as a high-send solution: a digital SLR
camera with a good macro lens and a flash system. In specific, I use
Nikon D200, a Nikon 105mm macro lens, and the flash system that
mounts on the front of the lens. This gives a good working distance
from the bee, and good depth of field. A less expensive option is
something like one of the Nikon Coolpix models that has a macro mode;
the disadvantage is that you have to be pretty close to the bee to
get a picture.
