Macro Monday ~ busy as a bee!

Macro Monday

Busy as a Bee!

I will admit that I have been trying to get a good bee picture for ages, but they always turned out blurry!  Then a friend of mine told me that photo trickery is that often a dead bee is used in good shots and just pinned in situ.

So I will say I am more than rather happy to have gotten these shots and admit that I love the colour combination, so pretty as well as the bee of course.

He does look rather busy doesn’t he?

As always thank you for reading/viewing xx

    You are very brave to get that close and also take more than one blurry shot of that whopper. My hair is standing on end just thinking about it!!

      Haha funny well the blurry ones hit the trash and this little fluffy bee is a cutie right? Lol

        Hmm – not sure that cute is the word I would use to describe you little friend! My brother was mowing the grass years ago when we still lived at home and got stung on his forehead by (he claims) a bumblebee. I remember parking my car in the drive and shouting hello – he turned round from the mower and I just got the shock of my life – he looked like he had been hit by a bus – his forehead was enormous and his eyes were like slits. I dragged him straight to my car and took him to the hospital for a shot…

          Wow he’s seriously allergic that’s dangerous as you found out I hope he carries a pen with him now x
