Day 298: The Bees Knees
I got home this afternoon to about a million bees buzzing about the lavender bushes that line our driveway. Bees don't really bother me so I thought this was a great opportunity to give my lens adapter a workout using Belinda's Macro lens. I ended up taking 139 photos of bees and that made it very hard for me to choose one for today's post. I ended up choosing this one, which is very similar to many of the others.
It wasn't that easy to get a good photo of a bee, they don't tend to stay still for very long. But when I did capture a few that weren't too blurry the detail was pretty impressive. I like their hairy little legs, the veins in their wings and how soft and fluffy their bodies look.
