While trying to capture a swallowtail butterfly and ruby throat hummingbird in the same shot I was mesmerized by this bumble bee who ignored the two as they jockeyed for position and had a nice nectar extraction.
Hello Sam,,,,that’s a pretty yellow bloom that bee is sitting on,,,,its a great close-up of the bee on a bloom,,,,,,,,Rick
Thanks Rick for the nice comment and favorite. I appreciate it. This bumble bee pretty much ignored me as well. ~Sam
Wonderful image Sam great close up
Thank you Maggie! I so appreciate your support in comments and favorites. Very much appreciated my friend. I am requesting you paint a barn in the country sometime in the future. Have a great day! ~Sam
Wonderful macro Sam !!!! hugzz xx ☺♥
Thanks so much Evita for your nice comment and fav. It was a fun day with butterflies and hummingbirds and bumble bees. ~Sam
I just planted 10 lantana plants in my backyard. I’m hoping something will live in this heat. I love the little bouquet shaped blooms but they are a bit stinky. Suppose to be poisonous to some animals also…hope it kills all those mice and rats that are eating my seedlings. Grrr! I feel grumpy just thinking of those critters but….the pretty lantana cheers me right up!
Thank you kindly for your nice comments and favorite..much appreciated. I know this the bees and wasps and hummingbirds and butterflies love it so it must have some pretty good nectar. Hope yours live as they are showy plants planted in a bed. ~Sam
Sam …aùn no he logrado capturar un abejorro…….Aquì no dejas escapar detalles . Me encanta la nitidez de la foto y poder observar las pelusas de su cuerpo y los detalles realzados de sus alas…..Super bien !……..liliana
Muchas gracias Liliana amablemente por su apoyo y fue un verdadero placer que buscan capturar un colibrí o una mariposa y la abeja este seguía viniendo a mi visor … La naturaleza es maravillosa ¿no? Disfrutar de su semana de mi amigo. ~ Sam
Lovely capture Sam. I love how fuzzy these bumble bees are and I love you captured how translucent their wings are. Great catch Sam. Kathy :)
Thank you very much Kathy! I just love how you go out intending on snapping a subject and are surprised by what you find in your focus instead. Yes much too hot for golf but we diehards did play Saturday morning at 730am when it was 84 and was done by 11am where is was only a breezy 95. Same forecast for Saturday…my yard is crust. I water the gardens and flowers only….~Sam
Lovely image Sam, wonderful macro!!!
