Overtime 033-050 – I give up!!

Getting late. Wanted to finish posting these. But it’s not going to happen today unless I do it this way. So I think the final tally will be: 150 bee shots, 10 or so bonus (quasi-) pollinator shots, and one beebaby iris shot.

Here are the rest of ’em:

Rude one on a Semp – those mandibles!!!! Stuff of nightmares?
Sweat Bee on a Hyacinth
And the Liatris…
Beeneck…and those eyes.
Oh, those pollen buckets!
Brown-belted on a Sunflower…again
Escaping the Tulip
The Cone Flower rides again…or maybe…it’s the one being ridden?
Not Quite the Last Aster
Great face on that huntii
Tiny, tiny, tiny one with two tulips.
The last of the sedums
Approaching the Liatris to reload
The last Russian Sage
The last Cone Flower
Hard to believe, but the last aster. It also occurs to me that everyone will be viewing this backward to how I posted it. So prepare yourself – many more asters to follow!
Fantastic Agastache
The last of the last of the last – from the third swarm (May 2020). Phew!!

Overtime 001 – Ha!

So in my randomizing, I started out by pulling 200 shots – thinking that I’d get maybe 100 that I’d publish for today. And it’s true – I lost a good few. Some were flowers. Some were too dark to work with quickly. Even a couple I’d already posted. But…I ended up with some leftovers.

So…as I can for the rest of the day, I’ll try to get them up. Also shot a few this afternoon that I’d like to post – if only to have some fresh stuff in 100+ (emphasis on the plus) bee day.

Love, love, love this shot. That tongue. Plus the huntii is such a cool bumble. It’s on a Russian Sage.

Back in a bit to continue. Other responsibilities beckon…and I didn’t think posting what I have would take this long. Such fun, though. I love these little ones. They lift.

Bee 081 – Why…

…did I select this one as a “keeper”? I’m not certain. The afternoon light is brutal and the focus isn’t quite there. The background is pretty interesting…the impressionistic workings of the colors, I guess. Gonna keep it in and publish it as part of the series, though – if only because it would really mess up the numbering and the process if I didn’t.

Find something to like about it. I’ll feel better about it if you do.
