It’s a while since I’ve managed a bee photo, but I had a go this week. In macro, focusing is very critical and depth of field is minute even at small apertures. Also, it takes a high shutter speed to ‘stop’ the movement of a bee! However, I thought this was quite an interesting picture, showing the proboscis of the bee which has just been sucking (or is about to suck) nectar from the tiny buddleia flower!It's kind to share!
The incredibly mild weather during December has led to a lot of unseasonally early sprouting of new growth on various trees and shrubs. Whereas what I posted last week was a picture of a very tiny leaf indeed, this array of leaves on a buddleia bush were easily noticeable! Will all these new growths survive frosts, later, I wonder?It's kind to share!
