Started my morning at Okeeheelee park where I found an upside down tortoise I initially thought was dead. Flipped her over and tried photographing bees and it was as if I was blamed for the misfortune of the tortoise.
Every flying insect was dive bombing me. I have been sneaking around bees with ninja-like precision for quite some time, but today I had a target on my back.
Not bitten, but something was definitely pissing them off. Maybe it’s my new deodorant? Tired of doing sprints I’m off to mounts botanical garden…
I have finally taken a bumblebee photo that I am satisfied with. My goal was to photograph them at 1:1 macro level and because of their frequent stops between flowers it has been difficult. It took me over a month of weekly photography trips to get this shot. It’s one of my favorites because of the effort that was put forth.
