A very determined bee was gathering nectar from a violet flower as summer was nearing it’s end.

This image was captured handheld with a Canon EOS 10D camera through a Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact-Macro Prime lens, shot at 1/250th sec @ f/4. ISO was set to 400.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.
