BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

IT’S THE BEE’S BUSINESS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Bee 2

The wildlife garden I visit has tremendous stands of coneflowers, which are usually paired with bumblebees. Yesterday was no exception. I followed this bumble bee as it moved from flower to flower, collecting pollen grains. The flower in the first photo is in better condition than in the second so I cropped minimally to show it off. (It’s more about the flower than the bee.) I took both shots with my 105mm, flash and soft box at F14, 1/250sec, ISO100.

  4. Great pix, Belinda! I love the red-tipped orange spikes in the center of coneflowers. Their spiral pattern adds nice interest to the shot.
