Garden bumble bee,Bombus hortorum, coming in to land on nemesia in my hanging basket. I am aiming to get a good shot of all our common bee species that come into my garden. I’ve seen them all now with the addition of the not so common tree bee. Taken witha canon 450D and a canon 100mm macro lens. Minimal processing in cs4.

Almost retired,and a photography addict! I own a canon 7D and 5 canon lenses. I love playing in photoshop! I’m a fan of HDR if it isn’t too overdone.I also dabble in fractal art occasionally.

    There is a bee society I can’t just think of the name they like you to inform them about the bees in your garden as so many are disappearing .
    Lovely shot Sandra.
    Funnily enough I have about ten minutes ago taken a pic of one on my honeysuckle, It could hardly move it’s sacks were so full lol x

  • Irene, I belong to it…the bumblebeeconservation.org.uk
    I received a txt from them yesterday thanking me for my lovely pictures of the tree bumble bee and how it will help with their plotting its spread.

    Great shot….and very brave!

  • Thanks..not at all, they only bother you if you really annoy them. They are not aggressive like honey bees. Having said that I got stung last year as I walked straight into a flying bee!!
