Gigantic Bumble Bee by The Recordist published on 2012/05/16 20:10:54 +0000 Here we go again, insect recording has begun. Here is a large bee I recorded with the MKH-8040 very close up. This is the first time I've recorded a bee with the 8040 in a isolated area of my garage. When pitched down he sounds like a Bee monster from planet Anthophila. Yes, the pic is the actual bee recorded.
