  1. Nice work, Lemony. I know how difficult it can be to get a shot as nice as this.

    • Basically, I just stand there with my camera practically sitting on the flower, and I follow the bee as he moves. I have many shots with him all over the blossom, but this was the angle I liked best. The hard part is getting the bee in focus (I focus manually), so doing so quickly enough and with the right depth of field before the bee moves or flies off can be a challenge.

      • So, the perfect combination of skill, patience, and luck! The photograph is incredible.

  7. The light gives the impression the bee is wearing a mantle of gold. Nice closeup, Lemony.

    • Thank you, Steve. I liked that bit of golden light, too, on the bee. It was just the right time of day.
