More Bee Photos

The title says it all really. I love photographing bees.

Although the dead ones are much better behaved 😜

Technically this should be part of my Macro Garden Series, but it’s bees, so…. I’m also linking it here to Jude’s March Garden Challenge, where she’s looking for wildlife in the garden. Β Take a look at Jude’s wonderful peacock post here.

Olympus OMD EM5 with 60mm macro lens, handheld.

See more of my macro bee shots here and here and here.

      Oh that reminds me, I’ll fix the last post. Thank you! You’re right, a dead bee is not so useful, just easy to photograph LOL.

  2. Love this photo, dj! I have no idea how macro photography works but the bee is bee-autiful. Sorry, couldn’t resist! The wings are especially amazing.

      Thanks Norah, they are so intricate and lovely to watch. I’m sorry I don’t know what the flower is, there are a lot of them in a lot of gardens where I walk GG.

    You did very well to catch these busy little bees, especially as they buzz around so quickly.
