Macro Photography: A Bee Enjoying French Lavender

in #palnet2 years ago

Here is “Bee Enjoying French Lavender” photo as I experiment with making the most of the variety of apps and tags on the Steem blockchain. Here using Partiko app and Palnet tag.

I recently learnt there were so many different types of bee. I don’t know what variety this bee is but it was sure enjoying the lavender.

It’s fantastic that we are able to take quality macro photographs with our phones these days!

I wonder if someone locally with be enjoying lavender enfused honey in a few months....

I never noticed the lavender flower had so many individual flowers within the flower!

That is a super clear closeup. What phone do you have?

Just remembered you can get a Bee Spotters Guide as part of the Bee Saver Kit from Friends of the Earth...

That’s excellent - many thanks for the top tip @pennsif : I’ll check that out.

iPhone7s : doing a sterling job despite being 2.25 years old. (Usually the time bomb goes off after 2years but this one is doing well.)

Never tried an iPhone.

Lovely photograph, I've been trying to capture this kind of picture for a few days now with little success, maybe I need to find some tastier flowers for the bees :)

Perseverance! This was take 25 ish! They do move pretty fast. The bees have liked Lavender and Laburnum in my garden this year....

Patients is key I assume and it makes a good photo so much better when it turns out like this. Time for me to start planting some flowers!

What a beautiful photography
