Sometimes you have to improvise when you are trying to photograph nature close by but don’t have access to much of it because you don’t have a garden. I happened to have my camera on hand when we went out to dinner with close friends one evening this summer, and got lucky when a bee visited some flowers close to the outside table where we were sitting. I’m allergic to bees and wasps but this one was so busy with the flowers and setting the zoom onto maximum allowed me to get close without getting too close. I’ve always struggled with photographs of flowers so these pics are a big step forward in my learning process and I’m delighted with the results. To bee or not to bee… that is not the question on this occasion!
