|Coming in for a landing|
Spring has sprung in my neck of the woods (and by that, I mean desert), and the plum tree in my front yard is full of lovely pink blossoms. Every year that signals the influx of many, many, and I mean MANY bees. On the other side of our driveway, we have a fruitless pear, which does the same thing. When we go into the front yard, the buzzing is pretty darn loud.
I've heard that slow and steady wins the race....maybe that's true!
I have been trying for days to get a clear close-up picture of a bee. I have several decent pictures, but nothing crystal clear. I have tried different settings, different lenses. I think I need a macro lens, but I don't even know how they work for moving targets.
Let me tell you, you do not want to know how many pictures I have taken. Okay... over 200 pictures - luckily digital 'film' is free! Here are some of my better ones.
