2014—Red Tongue

I’m still working on the fly-tying pix and mid afternoon, I decided I needed a break from them. I went outside about 3PM with my D7100 and the 70-200mm lens and sat by the lavender. I decided I wanted to capture bees in flight and stop the motion of the wings. I can do it with hummingbirds but it’s not as easy with bees, I’m finding. The only shot I liked was one of a bee completely still on the lavender. But, I thought the red proboscis was fascinating. It’s kind of a different view of a honeybee.
