Stings And Things

By LynneJoyce  
After yesterday's frivolity a more serious post that is all about the tiny creatures that are in such abundance at the moment. All 15 images were captured on dog walks or the dog jaunt to his hydrotherapy appointment.

I love trying to capture these minuscule but enchanting beasts, but my oh my, they are difficult models. For every half decent head or whole body shot I get of a bee, I reckon I get at least five bum shots. They seem to sense when you are about to press the shutter then they move.

I have opened with a Bumble Bee simply because it fits the Stings in the title. As ever the exif applies only to the first shot. Most of the images were taken with the Canon 5D mark IV.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

A fine collection of flying objects here, Lynne! 👍 I agree with you, they seem to sense when you're about to press the shutter, then fly off! 😬
