Had a real downpour this afternoon. great for the garden, but not so great if you are almost too heavy to get airborne in the first place. Not many options but to wait................

Another wet bee from yesterday. Bit of photoshopping to even out and blur my background a little.

These blooms drop everyday and new ones bloom the next day. This bee apparently knows that and got right to the root of the matter!

Finally made it out to try shooting some bees with the Olympus 300mm. Last one has a bit of rolling shutter on the wings I think.

I found a "new" bumblebee in my garden. That really made me happy. The more, the merrier!

My prize for winning the 'Flowers' category of National Bee Supplies 2021 photo competition arrived in the post today. This was the category with by far the most entries, so I'm very pleased with my win :)

Good job I was a runner-up - I'm allergic to bee venom.

I used Pro Capture L for these. Not the best light and these bees are small and fast! Always a challenge.
