This is a fairly ordinary photo but I quite like it. I also learned something in the process of watching the bees go to this flower.
Keep me covered chaps. I’m going in………..
I thought the bees would fly in, collect pollen, turn around and I would be able to photograph them head-on as they emerged.
WRONG. They all shuffled out backwards. I did not get a single head on picture. It looked as if there should be plenty of room to do a three point turn but no. They all decided to reverse uphill. Without wing mirrors. Pretty impressive technique. Isn’t that fascinating? Well I think it is, even if you don’t.
A flight worthy of Rimsky Korsakov himself.
