Flowers are one of my ‘fallback’ subjects. Sound harsh I know. But it’s true. They are there, naturally pretty and not moving, they are an easy subject to photograph and guarantee (mostly) successful result. I find them very helpful whenever I am short of ideas, or too tired from normal daily stuff, or lazy (366 days in a year, I think I’m allowed a day or 7 days of lazy, right). Today’s excuse was exhaustion.
This tree on my backyard just turned pink once the season fully kicked in. It was very attractive, as you could hardly see any green foliage from afar. As I came to have a closer look I saw that I was not the only one attracted to the colours, there were heaps of bees also there busy buzzing and do what bees do, hopping from flowers to flowers.
My kit lens was no micro, but I am quite pleased with this result.
