Continuing the “Thinking Small” theme this week, here are a few shots taken yesterday evening and this morning in the garden. Although it may be a little boring for my readers seeing the same thing over and over, I really can’t get enough of taking bee photos. I keep up my attempts at the closest/sharpest photo I can get. This is a real challenge. As windy as it has been lately, and as quickly as the bees move from flower to flower, I really have to be patient and seek out the best shot. Because it’s so windy, using a tripod is absolutely useless. I have to take all of these hand-held. Another challenge is the depth of field when working with subjects this small. Any slight movement throws the bee out of focus – or partially out of focus.
