I love bumble bees and can watch them for hours going from flower to flower loading up with pollen. This shot took some patience as needed to wait for the bee to arrive from the right angle to freeze the action.
yes i know very pink but theses camellia's are really eye catching this time of year. So i ventured 5ft into my back garden where this very pink specimen gazes at me through the patio doors. wanted a slightly soft, dreamy and abstract feel to this one.

humble bumble bee
persistence and patience is the name of this game! Book in lap, a comfy chair and remote release at the ready with everything pre-focused I just had t wait this one out. Fortunately the flurry of busy bees was a frequent enough occurrence that I only had a 30 min wait to get this. Depth of field is actually the hardest part because the bees don't have a flight path that's aligned to the narrow focal plain necessary to throw the background out of focus, so typically with so many shots in photography compromises have to be made. I think this is reasonably close but a bit more detail on the bee is what I really wanted but didn't quite get this time round.
poppy seed head
Loved the colours of this little poppy seed head. the muted tones behind it really help it pop out and become the spotlight.
