Bees Feeding – Macro Photography Sequence 

Today I took some photos of a bee feeding on Nepeta racemosa.  Instead of taking a single shot then moving on, I decided to try a sequence. I’m fairly pleased with how the images came out. I feel the angle could be better but the images are incredibly sharp.

Photographing Bees

In the Mediterranean the growing season moves quickly, most flowering happens during Spring. So as not to miss any of the Botanical Gardens fantastic blooms I try to walk at least one of the phytogeographical sections every evening. When I walk I always carry my camera. Whilst photographing the flowers I sometimes catch a few bees in the act (of pollination), these are some of my favourite photos and I wanted to share them with you.
