Just a sweet shot of a little one on an agastache. From August of this year. A bit of pollen on her back and all over her face. This agastache is a beautiful plant, but it’s been miserable to shoot on/at. Because each stalk comes from the ground (it doesn’t branch) and the stalks are pretty tall, it’s vulnerable to flapping in even the mildest breeze. Then, the intervals at which it throws pollen (I guess), are odd so some days (and at some times of the day) there are bees…but often it has none. Finally, the wool carder bees seem to love this particular plant – and they’re very territorial. So when a honeybee manages to land, a wool carder will often knock her off just as I’m acquiring focus. Probably more than you wanted to know. But do know that I’m thrilled when I can get a good shot on this one. I like the plant lots. It’s beautiful and it’s been a nice challenge to shoot at/on it.
