Another shot that doesn’t require much narrative. Love the wasp on the white.
Part of me hates to see this. Part of me doesn’t. Guess that’s emotion and reason coexisting. Maybe we, collectively, could use a little more balance.
The white is so nice. Composition is fun, too. This one just feels good.
I’ll often get multiple bees in a shot. And sometimes even with both in focus. But it’s really rare to get two in flight and in focus. So this is a pretty neat one. Dumb luck, of course, but I’m pleased with it. Something wrong with the crop, but I can’t figure it out. The bees are great, though! Shot yesterday. Cloudy and rainy today so likely no shooting today. Need the precip, though, for sure.
Have only seen honeybees this spring so far…until today. Only got a couple of shots of this little one (sweat bee) before she went elsewhere. Been wondering about them (the natives, I mean) for a while. Was nice to finally see something different. Now…where are the bumbles? In other news, just got a text from our beekeeping friend – our (foster) bees will be back in 3-4 weeks. Fantastic!
Lots to love in this pic. But the beebelly does it for me!
They were out today. The light was all over the place and it was only in the mid-40s, but… Not only were the crocuses going wild, but the tiny daffodils were starting as were the Siberian squills. And some kind of small iris – the really short ones. About four inches tall. Maybe Siberian, too? I’ve forgotten. I especially like the rock in this one. It is a “rock garden”, after all.
They’ve seemed to be spending time on the purple ones the last couple of days. (Paranthetically, it has been cloudy and cooler today so the crocuses were closed when I looked a bit ago). But I got a few shots on the yellow ones yesterday. And this is a good one. Note the catalpa leaf (again).
I think that’s a catalpa leaf she’s on. Lots of fun pics old/new in the spring. Speaks to me in some way. And the bee is really cute. Been a while since a bonus bee.
Took a few minutes midday to shoot some bees…and take the very bad dogs out for some fun. Got a lot of nice shots. Feel bad about putting the “out shooting be back soon” note on the gallery door…but I guess it’s my place – so my rules. Great little one deep in the crocus.
