Bee and prickly poppies; best viewed in the largest sizes. I have worked hard to try to capture bees in the air and I have had a few successes, but this day at the botanic gardens was the best I ever had for capturing them in the air. I probably managed to capture about five or six in the air that day. I'm not sure which is the best, but I liked this one pretty well because I captured reasonable detail, as well as a bit of the motion of the wings. So often, the wings are moving so fast that they are completely transparent. I shot this at 1/800 of a second and I think the fast speed is why I was able to get a bit of the wing in motion.
We had a great time on our camping trip to Blue Lake. Thanks to everyone who commented on my fireworks allium shot. Hope you all had a good weekend and that your week gets off to a good start. I'm going to see my physical therapist this morning to see if she can do anything about my painful sciatica and then I have a luncheon with my book review group.
