The Bee

10 Feb

The Bee

This is a photo I took early in the morning during the summer of 2011. I noticed a bee flying from flower to flower and realized he was covered in pollen. It was an amazing moment for me since I had always wanted to catch a bee on film covered in pollen and I got my chance. Have any of you gotten some cool insect photography?—-CMY

    You catched a nice moment 🙂 I admit this kind of photography. Im not an expert in the subject of photography but as hobby graphic designer I noticed the depht of field effect.
    It looks pretty awesome. And the bee is working 😀

    Wow, great shot! I’ve never taken a photo of a bee covered in pollen before, but now I’m going to see if I can get one this summer – if all this snow ever melts. 🙂
    You have a wonderful blog here. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

    Such a beautiful moment that you’ve captured! I’ve never seen a bee covered in pollen so this is pretty neat!

      Thank you I hadn’t seen one either so I was thrilled when I saw the little guy flying around. I’m glad you like it and thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Dear Christina,

    You must be quite brave to have taken a picture of a bee this close. I have found them to be unpredictable and intimidating. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog!
