Pictures Of A Bee On A Flower

For the lack of a more creative title, I present to you some pictures I took of a bee gathering pollen from a bunch of flowers at my parents’ garden.

I think that the above is the best picture I snapped of this critter. Do you agree?

I love how serene the bee looked in this shot. It’s like she’s taking a rest. The fact is that the little fella stayed in this position for mere seconds.

Playing with the colours a bit to get a more dreamy feel.

I think the flower stole the focus of this picture from the bee.

Showing some bee booty!

That’s it for now. I got some pics from Malaysia Flora Fest. Maybe I’ll upload them later in the week.

As always, comments and critique always welcome 🙂

    What type of camera are u using? DSLR ke or ordinary digi cam? Kalau dapat fokus lagi dekat tentu lagi ngam efek makronye tu. 🙂

    Nabil: I’m using a Sony α200 DSLR. Would love to get a closer focus, but this is the max that my current lens can focus.

    WOW!!!!!! Yummy and beautiful pictures! It somehow reminds me of the word “Bee Pollen”. 🙂

    Love your work! So much better than mine!

    ethel: Thanks. I’m still a noob when it comes to digital photography though.

    papajoneh: Thanks Joneh! But I think the purple flowers aren’t suitable for your Mrs. They’re way too small! Get some beautiful roses for her instead 🙂 Will upload more pictures when I have spare flickr bandwidth.

    …or if there’s someone generous enough to give me a Flickr Pro account (unlimited uploads).
