Terrific captures! They're still doing so here as well.
Thank you William and that is good to hear.
Oh MY!!!!!!!!!!! What glorious pictures!!! Really, they are sharp, clear, and detailed. They should be in National Geographic magazine. I hope you didn't get stung! I think the first flower is a wild sunflower. You amaze me with your photography.
Thank you Ginny, what a sweet comment! Bees don’t seem to bother me when I take their photos and I have never gotten stung. These were actually cell phone photos that I took and though it looks like I was very close, I cropped them to bring out the detail. These cells are getting better than any small camera I have ever owned and the colors seem more vibrant. Thank you for IDing the flower and again for your very sweet comment :)
Beautiful things - and stunning photos.
Thank you EC :) I agree, bees are beautiful and may have a sting but they are surprisingly gentle creatures. I do sympathize with those who have allergies though, which I understand can have dangerous consequences if they are stung.
Denise, your photos are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing, I really needed to see this beauty today, it was a difficult day. Warm hugs to you, dear friend. :)
Thank you Linda and I am so sorry your day was a tough one. Hope the next one will be much better. Warm hugs back to you dear friend :)
i see you were a busy as a bee photographing these bees cloe up. Fabulous. Off to Malawi to my fmaily here tomorrow but post all scheduled in but i will not be commenting from here.
Thank you Margaret and happy travels! I am already looking forward to those incredible photos you will be taking.
Hi Denise, great captures of the busy bees in your garden. Have a beautiful day!
Thank you Nancy. You too :)
Busy as a bee. Lovely clear shots
Thank you Small Kuching :)
Wow great photos Denise, well done. Not easy to get bees sharp and clear as well I know, and they do not hang around for long in each place. Take care Diane
Thank you Diane, they weren't quite as fast as they usually are. Getting tired after all their hard work no doubt :)
Great bee shots. Your yellow floors are so pretty and that yellow is popping in color. Great job.
Thank you Pam, the flowers were pretty that day.
Hello, pretty images and captures of the bees. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!
Hi Eileen, thank you and a happy Thursday to you :)
After seeing the fall photos in your previous post, Denise, it appears that summer is making a comeback.
Only on my blog, just taken out of sequence. I took the bees a couple of weeks ago :)
amazing details on these funny bees.. they sure are happy sucking up that nectar and so beautiful
Thank you Sandra, they were happy little bees for sure :)
Excellent job on the pictures, you did great with these.
Thanks Jimmy :)
Thank you Ellen :)
That was a good show, "The last of the Summer Wine." These are fabulous shots of the bees.
Thanks Diane :) and I agree, I loved that show.
Amazing photos of the bees. Greetings from Slovenia. Nadja
Hello Nadja, how very nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting and for leaving a lovely comment.
Fabulous! How did you get these incredible shots?
Thanks Sandi, I have tried to take photos of other bees and these were by far the most cooperative. All my photos were taken with my cell phone and I was very happy they came out sharp and clear, because I cropped right down to the bee. I was not as close as it would appear.
Hi Denise and a wonderful set of images of both bees and flowers, I wish we could have some better weather. All the best, John
Thank you John. I hope you get that better weather soon and do hope you are fully recovered now. All the best to you too :)
very busy indeed!
the only thing better than the title are the images. they are gorgeous, so crisp and in focus. they sure are busy bees this time of year!!!
Thank you Debbie, so happy you liked my busy bees :)
I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer. Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
