Beauty and the bee...

I was photographing this thistle when a bee flew in, landing in just the right place for a photo!

I love this shot, Kelly! It's absolutely gorgeous. I think you do very well without that macro lens you are dreaming about. BTW, I left a comment for you on my Crane flight post regarding their migration.

Kelly amazing photo. Nature has so much to offer. Thanks for sharing. Anna :)

I think Mr.Bee is a bit of a ham for the camera.
And you do this without a macro lens? Nice!

Lovely little bumble bee! You could publish an amazing collection of nature shots, and I'd stand in line to buy it!

Hi Girlie, That little bee definitely wanted his picture taken, didn't he????

How's life for you all in PA???? Has school started for your son now? What sports are they involved with now?

Hope you have a great Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Kelly,
I love photography when it is that simple... You are preparing yourself for a shot and then something unexpected happens, like this bee landing on your flower... Superb shot!

Beautiful! I love seeing the delicate design of the bee's wings. They are usually fluttering so fast you miss seeing them.

Connie said...

Beautiful shot of the thistle and the bee. Really good composition.

DK Miller said...

I love it when that happens! I like how the bee is just diving in. Great shot.
