Hello wonderful friends, I’ve put together a little collection of bee related pictures that I’ve taken this year. Due to Covid-19 I spent a lot more time in the garden and tried to encourage as much nature as I could. Bees have always been really special to me they are such clever little creatures and I try my hardest to take care of them and grow as many flowers as possible.
Enjoy some warm and happy summer colours and plenty of bees…
I decided to grow sunflowers because they’re one of my favourites and yellow is the colour I love most. it really didn’t take much for the bees to arrive.
The bees themselves were incredibly camera friendly and by the end of the summer I was able to get super close to them, at one point I was sitting amongst the veggies I was growing with a bee on the top of my head – it didn’t sting me just sat there for a few minutes and then flew away.
I love how this little Honey bee is almost totally covered in pollen! Until I started photographing the bees I never realised quite how fluffy the are.
In the end it became a morning ritual I’d go out in the garden check the plants watch the bees collecting pollen, in 15 minutes I could find five types of bee! They are such an important part of life and we should do more to care for them. It takes so little to keep them happy.
I hope you enjoyed these bee pictures.
Thanks so much for reading, have a great weekend.
