As the days get shorter and colder in the fall, the window for shooting bees really shrinks. At the height of the summer, I can go out before the sun crests the mountains…or shoot well into the evening shadows. But in the later part of autumn, it’s midday (if that). So the light isn’t always great – as is the case in this pic. But…like the bees…we take what we can get. Lots like life, no?
