It's a Small Small World

This time of year my macro lens just screams at me to dust her off and get up close with the world.  After a long day of yard work, the evening light was getting warm and the bees were just loving the blossoms on our nectarine tree.  I decided to attempt some free hand macros of bees at their busy work.  Those suckers are both fast and camera shy.

The bee is a bit out of focus in this shot, but it's tongue already being extended amid flight was unique. 

I considered myself lucky to have gotten a few photos considering the proximity and shooting free hand.
This is a great time to just get out in your own back yard, get up close and view the world from a different perspective.
Until next time.

  1. That's cool. I didn't even know you had a macro lens. It seems the lighting was just right for a good color and a fast enough shutter speed to catch them in flight; I like that you can see their wings while they're still in the air.
