Finally... "A bee"

After a long drought has finally started our rainy season! Now there are fewer days with good weather, but just stops raining, there are many bugs! However, today I have a bee, a "simple" bee! And yesterday, commenting on a good picture of Siegfried (Siggi), where you could see a pretty bee, I realized I never posted a bee in TN!

The best part was finding the "relaxed bee" in the extreme of a long blade of grass, early in the morning! That allowed me to select a POV quite appropriate to generate the effect of a "bee floating without moving wings." But if you look good, can see the tip of the blade of grass held between the front legs of the bee. Unfortunately the bee took off after this photo! I had wanted to take another photo!

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hi Jesus ...my Neighbor today.
Excellent mid flight capture of a bee. Amazingly sharp details, and the colours are rich and vivid. I'll give you five stars for this one...well done.

hello Jesús

WOW ! again you are showing us the great talent you have
to do nature photos shot with a compact camera but with
DSLR high image quality, you focused the bee superbly
with great sharpness and details, wonderful luminosity,



Hi Jesus,this photo is so clear and nicely detailed that even with the cameras I own it would not be all that much better in terms of quality or execution.It is such an excellent point of view as it looks like it is floating in space but as your note indicates it is on the end of a long blade of grass,but f/2.8 the bee is really all that is in focus and the blade of grass just kind of disappears.A very enjoyable photo and thank you for giving us the chance to see it.

Noo, Jesús; como es esto; una verdadera maravilla, que bárbaro...saludos.

Hi Jesus
What a capture1
Details of this little bee are perfect and the colors are great!
In my opinion, is one of the most beautiful bee image.

Good Morning my friend Jesus!
You are coming back here with rather unusual image of that bee.At first I tough that the bee is flying but after a careful examine ad reading your notes I realize that the Bee actually is not flying at all! Well done Jesus!The Aperture of f2,8 is a good choice in this case, well composed frame and warm colors! I love it !That is what we need I think here - Creativity!
Best Regards,

Pues si no dices lo de la hierba no nos enteramos!

Bueno, que no se me olvide, gracias por los nuevos piropos, esta vez a mi persona; el que dice eso de alguien es de admirar: Yo también tengo el don, no se si bueno o malo en ocasiones, de alabar las actitudes y el trabajo de muchas personas; lo de malo lo digo porque a veces mi cerebro es transparente y eso a la sociedad y especialmente en el trabajo comercial no gusta o no se lleva, pero a mi edad yo ya no cambio (48) :-)
Lo que dices de simple no cuadra ya que por la explicación hay cierta complejidad en la toma, por cierto muy bien resuelta. Como siempre, bellos trabajos por tu parte y bien resueltos técnicamente.

Saludos desde Catalunya Jesús.

Ciao Jesus, una semplice ape, ma che fantastica macro, l'hai ripresa in volo con una nitideza che sarebbe stata eccezionale anche ad insetto fermo e che dettagli, la piů bella foto di ape in volo che mcapitato di vedere, e ne ho viste tantissime, bravissimo amico mio, buona Domenica, ciao Silvio

Ciao Jesus. "Congelata" nel'azione del volo! Dettaglio impressionante difficile da ottenere in queste condizioni. Ma tu sei un grande!

Hi Jesus,

A fantastic Bee - but I have never heard anyone so happy to find a bee! You captured him perfectly with excellent colors and fine details. I especially love the pose. He seems to be suspended in the air! He looks great against the green background. Stop being greedy :-) He let you get one fantastic shot - bee happy.


This is one of the best photos of a bee I have ever seen - I adore it!
