STOPS ALONG THE WAY

BEE WATCHING

19 Comments

I like to watch bees as they work their way among the flowers. This one had just gotten started as it hadn’t pick up much pollen yet. I took this photo with a long lens, you can get quite near to the insects without disturbing them or getting too close for your own comfort.

  1. No need to fear being close to foragers! I’ve become used to using the wide angle zoom for bees collecting pollen or nectaring. I’ll get the glass within 6” of them for a crisp macro—they do not see the big black round thing as a threat. Try it some time. 😀
