A happy bumble bee, just doing his bee thing, unaware of anything except the task at hand.

This photo was shot on April 24th, using a Canon EOS 10D camera with a Canon EF 28-80mm f/2.8-4L Macro zoom lens. The shutter speed was 1/90th sec at f/8. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.

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.

    Beautiful color and like the bee. I haven’t ever capture a bee yet.

  • Thanks, Wanda! Judging by your work, I am sure that you will get many great bee photos. Anyone who shoots as many beautiful flower pictures as you do will find that plenty of bees show up to pose for you (maybe when you least expect it)! Thanks a lot for your kind comment!
