Bumble in Context – in Flight

Normally I get a little closer when I post these shots. But this one from yesterday… Liked the background. The context. The movement. Even the messy shapes. And that salvia…blooming all summer long in one form or another. Yesterday there were four different bumbles (sizes, species) moving from blossom to blossom.

Hmmmm…just thinking what you experience with these shots vs. what I do as I’m taking them. You see that 1/1000th of a second every day. Often works pretty well. But like this one – I saw four little ones circling and moving and buzzing and busy…looking for that split second. Not sure I’m explaining well because the idea in my mind is as fuzzy as the bumble… Whatever the case – joy in movement and light and color and life. That’s not only enough, but the entirety. Guess it worked.
