Honey Bee on BuddleiaIt’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!

Campanula in GardenI took this photo only yesterday. It seems to show how I was feeling; it’s as if summer is already flying by. For many schoolchildren, the holidays have only just begun, yet many flowers are almost over. Thankfully, there are more following! The ‘bell’ of this campanula flower seems to be looking outwards at the two seed-heads. But hopefully there are still many good things to come.
