If you scroll down a few post, you will see my photo of a honey bee eating from a clover. This post features a similar photo of a bumble bee stopping to eat a portion of his breakfast at this clover. The morning dew, which was still on the grass when I shot this photo, added color and beauty to my bee portrait.
Bees are hard to photograph because the move from flower to flower so quickly. I managed to capture this large bumble bee as he was eating from one of the our blueberry bush’s spring flowers.
Look closely on the far end of this beautiful red sunflower, and you will see a good sized bumble bee sitting on the flower and enjoying himself.
