A few days ago, I shared with you some photos of flowers I took recently. Today I’d like to share a few more photos I took that day, more specifically the ones with the busy bees on the yellow cactus flowers.

Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view. This is the photo I shared the other day.

I love how the sunlight reflects on the bee’s wings to show its intricate design on the photo below.

I wonder how much nectar the bees can collect from these tiny flowers, which are just the size of a bee. At least the bees were busy doing their job and I didn’t seem to disturb them with my camera.

I got lucky for this last shot and managed to get two bees in the frame, a different angle for each. Busy bees!

    It’s amazing how you can ‘see’ the sunshine, without actually seeing that it’s sunny outside given the darker backgrounds. Nice. 🙂

      Thank you! That area was in the bright sunlight but things behind were in the shade because of a tree, so it helped bringing out the contrast. I love photographing bees. They’re so focused on their job and never take a break.

  3. […] I took the next photo at the San Diego Botanic Garden a few weeks ago. Bees seemed to love this cactus flower. You can see more photos of these bees and cactus here. […]
