that picture hide a sad story. I was at the Botanical Garden of Montreal and I saw a nice red flower. a wasp was walking on it but something was wrong. I can’t say exactly cause I’m not an expert but I think that bee was dying. very slow movements, just like if it was stone. stayed on that flower for so long so I took a lot of pictures. it was so easy but I felt like If I was taking advantage of a sad situation and I feel bad about that.
something like that happened to you?
anyway. I like the result so I present it to you.

    I know how you feel…it’s sad to think that something so beautiful is suffering. If it’s cold outside…bees will move much slower. Maybe that’s what was happening. A beautiful shot of a very colorful bee.

  • no, it was summer and really not cold. in fact, I don’t put my nose outside when It’s cold! lol. thank you so much Dana
