This is a discussion on Sunflower Bees within the Animals (mammals, birds, insects etc.) forums, part of the Show your photo (Color) - Landscape & Nature (flowers, mountains, storms etc.) category; I was sorry the Assignment this month wasn't the letter B. Oh well. During the summer I grew some sunflowers ...

    Default Sunflower Bees

    I was sorry the Assignment this month wasn't the letter B. Oh well. During the summer I grew some sunflowers in order to have some nice photos in the autumn. So that's now. These plants all died last week because of the snow storm. But I still got lots of macro photos (well, shot with a macro 100mm lens.) Enjoy:

    Excellent. I love bee macros. 1 and 4 are, I agree, the best but 2 was so close. I wonder how it could have been better because it feels like it has such potential.

    Thanks for the comments. With #2, I struggled with the composition. I like the whole flower/bee part, but there is something compelling and distracting at the same time about the leaf and the back side of the flower. I was trying for a rule of thirds composition. The next photo in the sequence is much closer to the bee:



    And the next one closer yet:



    Perhaps this one is better:
