So I was kind of stuck around the house this morning because our elder “child” (dog) CJ is not feeling well and we have to keep her quiet. I was sitting in our back yard and taking some photos of hummingbirds with a lens combination that I haven’t tried before when I noticed some bees on a pepper tree that we have. I don’t have a macro lens but I figured I could kill some time trying to catch a bee in flight with my handheld telephoto. I didn’t get any great shots but thought you might be interested in this one – taken at 1/4000 sec. The yellow sacs on the bees back legs are called honey baskets – where they store the pollen after collecting it…..
