Bees on an agave flower

I’ve posted about agave attenuata before, in January of last year (here). The plants are blooming again and, once again, the bees are all over them. This year I wanted to focus on the bees in flight, just before they settled on the flowers to forage. This resulted in a fair number of bees buzzing around my head, but I worry less about that than I used to. I took a lot of photos, most of which were free of bees, or featured bee blurs.

These were a couple of my favorites, each capturing a bee just before plunging into the bounty within.

      I agree it’s very hard. I took a lot of photos to get a couple of good shots. But I also find that I don’t mind too much how the photos turn out because I just enjoy seeing the bees going about their business.

      Thanks. I took a lot of photos to get those shots. Bees do hover, but they also move fast so it was tricky getting them in shot and in focus. They really like that flower when it blooms.
