Bumblebee on dahlia

Celeste Mookherjee

Long Beach, United States

Artist's Description

Bees of several kinds really love the dahlias, and so I mounted a zoom lens one morning in the dahlia garden and waited. I liked the special grace of this dahlia and was delighted when a bumblebee stopped for a sip of nectar.
