Bee on gum blossom

Celeste Mookherjee

Long Beach, United States

Artist's Description

I asked and was told this is a red gum flower. Sure looks pink to me! Either way, the bees were entranced with it! I photographed this bee tasting blossoms on a tree in the front yard at my sister’s house in Ferny Hills, Queensland, Australia. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/4, 1/100 sec., ISO 100, overcast, handheld)
