Still at Sandsend, across the other side of the beck in front of Low Row Cottages, I came across some poppies at the side of the path. A few bees were attracted to them, and begging to be photographed so, waving the camera towards them, grabbed a few shots. Now, the 70-300 lens is quite good at locking onto the focus and following a moving subject, but trying to get locked onto a subject this size in the first place was another thing! However, after shooting a couple of dozen, and binning half of them, I did manage one or two reasonable ones. Perhaps I should be focussing manually, and pre-focus on a spot where I hope the bee will fly into? Anyway, thought I’d inflict one of my best efforts on you…
