I went out late Monday afternoon with my macro lens to get some pictures of the redbud tree in our front yard. When I got there I found that I wasn’t the only one interested in the blossoms. There were bees all over the tree.
Since I’m allergic to bee stings I thought of beating a hasty retreat, but the bees were intent on the blossoms, and as long as I stood relatively still, they just ignored me. So I thought I would try to get some pictures of the bees at work.
The encounter with the bees was entirely unplanned, but I think I got some pretty good pictures for the experience. And best of all, I didn’t get stung.
