Caught Ya

At last. I have a bumblebee. Not my first but my best effort so far.

They are elusive (for me). Previous attempts got only a blur of colour: Too much bee, not enough bumble.

But this morning a most accommodating ‘bee stopped by this Indian paintbrush. Voila!


Bumblebee   Bombus sp.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Maybe they took pity on me. I’d been taking so many blurry shots … maybe they figured if I got a reasonably good one I’d go away and bother something else. 🙂

    1. If at first … just keep chasing. Last night I found one that (I guess) had decided to sleep on a flower stalk. Got several good pics. 🙂
