The Bee and the Purple Coneflower

United States
February 28, 2017 2:53pm CST
I shot this a few years ago while taking a lunchtime hike through a park not too far from my office. I had walked down to the lake and I found this bee going from flower to flower - it's amazing how little they care about human presence. I like to keep my distance when shooting bees, wasps, hornets, etc... and so I usually use my telephoto zoom; such was the case with this shot. I sold this image to an investment firm for use on the cover of one of their quarterly reports.

Be patient, there is something going on and things are not posting right. I look forward to seeing your photo...maybe tomorrow. This doesn't happen often but when it does, being patience is all we can do.

Can't see the photo but imagining it . The bees are buzzing around here too.In fact there is an enormous beehive on one of the window ledges.

I can't see it at the moment but I'll come back later. I'm sure they'll get it sorted soon. And well done on selling the photo.

I find it hard to capture Butterlfies as they can be very quick and flighty and not settle on any given flower. Will come back tomorrow to see the photo. No worries it will get sorted out soon.
