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!
For Magic Moments this week, hosted as usual at The Oliver’s Madhouse, I’m posting this picture of a bee. It isn’t the (technically) best picture of a bee I have ever taken, but I don’t think I will ever, EVER, capture a split-second moment like this again:
When I first viewed this shot after taking it, I couldn’t work out what had happened. Then I realised, by the process of elimination, the moment I had captured. The bee has opened its wings, but isn’t yet buzzing! That must be a very small interval, surely?
