About the Image(s)

I like go to a small flower garden maintained by the county to photograph flowers and insects. Most of the time it is too breezy to get sharp shots, but I did manage to capture this bee doing its job one day. Canon 7DMII at 1/250 sec. f/10 with ISO of 160.

Bruce, What a beautiful macro image of a bee collecting nectar. I feel like you have a very sharp and detailed image of this bee. I love seeing the design on the wings and the little hairs on it's back. Great job on the flower too. There is just a few little spots on the bees back that I cleaned up and I cropped it just a little to give it a little different angle. Love this image.   Posted: 10/03/2021 22:05:46

Thanks for your comment Linda. I think bees are fascinating--always working away gathering pollen. I too thought the pattern on this one's wings was quite interesting. It took a while to get it to stay still enough for a shot.   Posted: 10/08/2021 09:27:55
