More grainy stuff. But I love the colors and detail in this one nonetheless. Different look from full sun for sure. And really, there’s no balance to be struck. That’s not often the case, but sometimes is. On many fronts.
This time in the flax. The bees are so heavy compared to what the blossoms can hold. And they’re so rarely on this one. Love the flower though. Not sure what’s obscuring the bottom part of the bee. And admittedly a strange shot. Anyway…
Posted this big penstemmon the other day. It keeps going. So do the bees. And here’s a good look at one in flight (face obscured by her wing) with some good-sized pollen baskets on her. This one tickles me.
Tons of larkspurs this year. All are variants created by the bees – and the butterflies. Here’s a busy shot of a busy butterfly in the busy larkspurs. Enjoy!
Shot this before the sun crested the mountains this morning. Good grab and a great bee and a great flower. But it’s a high-ISO shot, meaning that no matter the denoise, it’s still a bit grainy. Sometimes I think that adds, though.
With a little bit of scabiosa on the left side. Looks like she’s coming right at you!
Along with it’s magenta friends… Kind of a weird shot, but it’s a gorgeous bee among gorgeous plants. Looks a little science-fiction-ey.
This monstrous penstemmon had blown over. So I got a 5′ piece of EMT conduit and made a stake for it. It’s standing up now. Pollinators love it. Missed a queen mason bee on it yesterday, but did get a good look at this brown-belted bumble.
Pretty rare to find a honeybee on this one. Normally, it’s natives. And even more normally it’s either wasps or flies. But this is a fun shot. Love the colors!
Been flat on my back since Sunday and the bee postings have suffered. Apologies. Going to catch up now with very few words – but it’s about pics, so…
