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.
