235Days #131 Bumble Bee
This guy flew like it had overdone on the pollen. He flew kamikaze fashion, bumping into things as he tried to zero in on a virgin blossom. It was hard to follow his flight or have any sense of where it might land long enough for a photo. All morning it teased me as I sat at my desk and watched. Three trips out with my camera and three trips back in with no success.
In the afternoon I grabbed my phone and went out for a little walk. Again the bee crossed my path and bumbled into a blossom. The screen on my cell phone looks completely black on a sunny day, but I got in close and hoped for the best.
Once back indoors it was a happy moment to find I had captured it successfully in three of four shots. This was my favorite. Once again I was surprised at the detail of the bee. To see his microscopic hairs and the stamens so clearly made me happy.
I hope you catch sight of a silly little critter or scene on your Friday travels.
