More buzzing things…


This first photo is as much to do with the pattern in the background as the bee itself.


The bee cleaning his antennae



A hoverfly doing its hovering thing ! I’ve yet to capture a really good shot of the wings as they move so fast.. but I’ll keep on trying .


So I just had to wait until it had landed and almost stopped its wing activity… though not quite!



You can see some of my other bee photos here

  1. Love the shot of the Hover fly Hovering! I know they tend to slow down when they are about to hover before landing (sometimes) but even so to get the shutter speed and the f stop just right ain’t easy. This is lovely even without the wings.

  2. Nice work catching the hoverfly … those things are bloody speedy … I mean they hover right, they appear to stand still even but they’re ridiculously tricky to catch … well, I find them so 🙂
