Photo-a-Week Challenge


Week 2 -33. Something with wings


I thought our garden was not going to have many bees this summer but with the warmer weather at last, they have appeared. This one is on the Echinops. There are lots on the lavender bush too.










Week 3 – 5 – Butterflies and /or Bees

The lavender is beginning to fade and the squirrels are harvesting the seeds from the sunflowers so I thought I had better hurry to photograph the bees before they all disappeared again. I was planning to catch a nice big bee with bright yellow stripes but I ended up with this one which seemed the better shot.

Switched to my 90mm lens as it is the only other prime lens I have. Got out my tripod too.
