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.

Las Americas Sunset

I have eventually got round to posting some of the photos taken while we were on holiday in Tenerife last month. We stayed in an area called Las Americas on the island. Where we had a great time, was just very hot.

I decided the best sunset shots would be captured over looking the beach, so we headed down to the bay. Sunset doesn’t seem to last as long in Spain, had to be quite quick to capture the shots that I wanted. Took the opportunity to take some sunset shots while staying there. So managed to capture so slightly more exotic looking sunset shots than in my normal repertoire.Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love sunsets and how they are one of my favourite things to photograph. There is something more captivating about them when you are in a more exotic environment. Think it adds to the romance and beauty of this natural event.

There are still a few more photos that I want to write separate posts for. For example got some nice shots at the Jungle Park that we visited. So shall post that on the blog shortly. Like always I took way too many photos, so still sorting through some of them.
