Bees may not bee (pun very much intended) everyone’s favourite insect. However they are very important to the life-cycle of our planet, and how can you not love these little pollinators? They may not be the easiest subject to photograph (patience is definitely required to get the perfect shot) but when you get that perfect clear shot they are interesting subjects. Its not always easy to see them in full detail with the naked eye, but armed with my trusted zoom/macro lens I can capture them in all their glory.

  1. Lovely to see these bees enjoying the Verbena bonariensis – it’s great for butterflies too. Having bees and butterflies in the garden is fascinating and very satisfying. 🙂

      1. You’re doing the same thing as me. 🙂 If we gardeners all create wildlife havens in our gardens, together we’ll be making a difference to all the little creatures that visit. And enjoying the chance to photograph them!

    1. Thanks, I have combined zoom/macro lens. The macro lens is 180mm-300mm, it’s perfect for getting those up close shots without having to get too close when photographing insects etc.
