Light is Everything!


I went out on a bumble bee hunt with my macro lens the other morning before I borrowed it to a friend. Had to get my macro fix. Fortunately the weather has been ridiculously cold and I haven’t missed much macro action. I’ve been waiting for a whole year for my nan king cherry trees to blossom and attract the big buzzers. One of them showed up so I gave chase and nabbed a couple quick shots before he buzzed off for good. Our tulips in the front yard were also in full bloom, backlit wonderfully by early morning sunlight. And, this years crop of bush bunnies were also munching away. So I nabbed a couple shots of them too. All in all, not a bad little walk!

    I LOVE the backlit tulips!!! Those darn bees don’t sit still for long, do they?

    • “Busy as a bee” holds true. They are finicky. But I vow to get one yet & have it properly lit too. Crazy challenge! 😉

    Our caraganas come alive with bees once the blooms appear. When that happens, I’ll join the challenge for “the” shot!
