I took a few minutes on Sunday night to play with my camera and watch the bumble bees hard at work collecting pollen from the flowers on the Abelia shrub in our front yard. They are fast and I had a number of blurred shots. Some a bit better. This one was my favorite.
It’s not perfectly clear and crisp, but the focus is one of the best in the group of shots I captured. Plus, I really liked this particular bee. He (she?) was the only one I noticed with a full pollen basket (the orange spot on its leg).
Linking up with Photo Friday.
