wren's blog: More Bees and a Wet Noise

Posted on Aug 28, 2011 6:05 PM

This morning I went out to run some test, trying to find the best settings for my close ups.

Before I get started I found a  bee that was just waking up.The pictures are not perfect but in them you can see parts of the bee that we normally do not see.

male Xylocopa virginica


He was on a Milkweed but as there was a sight wind and the Milkweed was also the more for a wasp nest , it was not a good set up so I moved it. But you can see the feet and the head

He was happy to sit on my thumb as I took her picture.  I wish I could have put him  some where, it is not easy to hold the camera with one had and take pictures


After he fly away I went on with my test but I get interrupted, That crazy dog of my stuck his noise in to see what I was doing. I could not resist taking z picture of it, not a good pictue as it was moving but here it is


Give a thumbs up
