Here’s a busy little bee going to town on a Firewheel wildflower. I used the macro setting on my Trusty Canon T6. The lens was about 6 or 8 inches away from the industrious bee as she was busy pollinating like all get-out.
It wasn’t until after my photo excursion that I realized these could very well have been Africanized bees. Lucky for me, they weren’t. I was very happy to see that the honey bees were in abundance at the tiny wildlife preserve where I took this picture. They were almost literally swarming around the patches of Texas Thistle, Firewheel, Bastard Cabbage, etc. It was a good day to be a bee. And a good day to be a photographer.
I left the colors, saturation, contrast, etc. alone. It’s beautiful just as it is.
