Buzzin' in the Sun

By ColouredImages    
Another early start this morning for a half hour drive back to the poppy fields so that I could capture some more backlighting with the early morning sunlight. I wasn't disappointed and managed another hundred or so shots.

It took quite a number of attempts to capture one of the many bumble bees on their early morning pollen collection.

Thanks for you wonderful reaction to the previous poppy shots. I know the site may be inundated with poppy shots at the moment, but you can hardly blame us...they do make a super capture in the right lighting conditions Wink

I am definitely NOT getting up early tomorrow...half five every weekend day during the last couple of weeks is taking it's toll

Dedication indeed.
A few earlies in a year is my limit but so worth while.
Excellent image with your isolated poppy and the bee!
