Bee-Line to My Flowers by Xandru

Photographing these tiny creatures isn’t my style. However, while in my back garden with the camera, I saw this little fellow buzzing over the lavender bush. I extended the zoom to its longest focal length, closed in and shot him a few times. Except for a bit of cropping, this photo is being presented ‘as-is’. Photo was taken in Marsaxlokk, Malta.

    Simply beautiful Xandru. The clarity of the bee is spot on. Using a zoom is the only way I will get ‘close’ to these little bugs that pack a big punch. ;) (I’m a wimp). LOL

  • Hi Kathy, love to see you around my neighborhood. Yes, a zoom is the only way to close in on these tiny fellas, but it still feels like taking pot shots :) Many thanks for the kind comments.
