Over the hill from where I live, there is a beekeeper. My mum says that they have recently built some more hives to expand their bee empire.
Today, I went out into the garden and the heather (I have 2x one is pink and the other is white) were so full of little bees!
They’re so quick, which makes them difficult to photograph!
The sun was out today; and when you were in the direct sun it wasn’t too cold. Clearly the bees were having a nice day as they were out in force!
I’ve been meaning to get into this field and photograph it for a few weeks now. I drive past it every day on the way to work, and I know there is parking near it so it’s an ideal spot.
For whatever reason though, it’s taken me ages to go to it and photograph it. I was worried today that I was going a bit early. The sun doesn’t set until 9, and I set out just before 7, but it turns out that it clouded over just as I was leaving, and the sun was just at the right height in the sky.
I felt I was pretty lucky with the bees too! So cute and fluffy and buzzy ^_^

These two bees were on this flower for ages – a least over an hour. Then they had a little fight, one bee pushed the other one off and the both flew away!

Today has been an expensive day of buying presents for myself 😉

Day 3 / 16 – Photo in a different location every day challenge
Location 3: Tickhill, Doncaster, UK
Today I went with my mum to visit my grandma and my granddad. They have a most wonderful garden, loads of flowers and fruit trees.
Some days inspiration just does not arrive. Instead of pushing it, it’s on days like this that I go to find something else to shoot. Today was a fair day, and we were having a BBQ for tea so I decided to go out into the garden.
There was a time not too long ago where project 365 would have been focussed mainly around the delights I found in my garden, however as I have grown as a photographer my preferences have changed. Sometimes though you just cant beat a bee on a flower and a bit of bokeh, Mmmmmm ❤
It’s been really warm, but I think it’s the humidity which is what makes it uncomfortable. This year is different from all the recent summers for more than just the heat though, this year I’ve seen loads of butterflies and bees! 😀
Didn’t manage to snap a butterfly today though, but I did capture a ladybug and a buzzy bee
