Five bees on this one. Top two in focus, the bottom not. Very, very narrow focal plane… But the flower looks great. Fun light this morning.
Oh, the bees are all longhorns. You really get a good look at the antennae (for which they’re named) in the upper-right bee.
Lots going on in this picture, but there’s lots of continuity. Missing a festival in Ridgway, Colorado this weekend because of the stings. Feeling lousy about that.
But the bees remain… There’s something about this shot that gets me. Maybe it’s the directional thing of both the stalk and the bee. Know it has something to do with the background, too.
