The Bee & The Thistle

Today is day one of The Wildlife Trusts annual nature challenge: 30DaysWild. Where for the month of June they encourage everyone to do one thing for your health, wellbeing, & the planet.

I know that I said that I wouldn’t publish my submissions as daily blog post. Well today is the first day and everyone is always super motivated on the first day of a new project. As predicted I took more than one photo. So here is a blog post with some of the other photos that I have taken today.

#30DaysWild – Day 01

Honey to the Bee

The third and final photo blog entry for today, again following on from the previous two posts. The Sheffield Botanical Gardens provided me with more inspiration this time in the form of insects as well as the flowers.

Combine lots of flowers with warm sunny July weather and you will almost certainly see bee’s. This was no exception, so tried some macro photography to capture the winged honey makers as they hovered and collected their nectar.
It took ages to get some of these shots as you really need to have patience when trying to photograph insects. There was an abundance of wasps and bees, trying to get the right shot at the right moment was painstaking.
I think the patience paid off eventually as I am quite pleased with the shots that I did manage to capture.
