A Bee Shot, Because Why Not?

Haven't posted to my insect collection in awhile, so here is one to catch up. Not exactly sure what the plant is that this bee is feeding on, but then again, do I ever? Hehehe

So Many New Opportunities!

I'm at some relatives for a few weeks, and they have a huge garden. I'm looking forward to exercising my flower photographing skills! I will have to get used to shooting in high humidity though, because when I went outside to get this shot my camera lane fogged up! I had to wait 5 minutes before it went away lol

In Flight

I got a little Photoshop action on this shot. There was a bee somewhere else in the shot, but she was too close to the lens and was very blurry. Because of her I kept passing this shot, but today I saw this one again and thought I could patch her out with PS. I knew it was too big of a job for LR, so I was pleased with the results PS gave. Not a professional job (you can probably find where the patch is) but for first try I am happy! Hope y'all's week started off well!

Having a Subject

I've been wanting to take a picture of the Indian Blanket wildflower for quite awhile but I just couldn't find a way to make it interesting. Today I was out for a walk and saw this little guy flying around the Blanket flowers. I got this shot and realized that I am better at photographing flowers when they have a subject on them. I don't know what that means, I just came to that conclusion :)

Hover Flies Are Awesome

With the colors of a bee and the maneuverability of a dragonfly, I think hover flies are my favorite insects. I could spend hours just watching them. In fact, that is what I did when I got this shot... ;)

Aaaaand We're Back

I'll be working a little harder to get some images posted because I don't like to be missing in action. But things happen and it's a part of life. So I'm glad to be back and I hope you enjoy another bee shot on a redbud (if you aren't tired of them yet hehehe.)
