Rare Shot on a Daffodil

Yesterday was silly frustrating for shooting. Fairly warm (mid sixties), not all that much wind (maybe ten mph from the south – not the brutal north we’ve been having lately). And prettymuch no bees. Anywhere. Three hives in the back yard pretty inactive during the day. Nothing on the fruit trees. A couple on the flowering ornamental cherry.

But… Got a great shot of a native sweat bee on a daffodil. Some flowers I just seldom get bees on – and the daffodils fall into that category. This is almost a full frame shot (maybe ten percent crop) so the detail of the bee isn’t all that apparent at the resolution that you see. But I’m thrilled with it.
