Nature at Work



I had set up my tripod at these wild Iris's in Gebhard Woods State Park, hoping to capture a hummingbird who had frequented these the morning before. I focused on 2 flowers, but it seemed the hummer always chose the ones I wasn't zoomed in on. I did have visitors to my flowers, which kept me entertained for the most part, but I walked away a few hours later, without that hummer shot. I came back for a few more days, but the iris's were dying, so that photo op died with them.

Note: If you click on the 2nd shot, the bee is collecting pollen, and you can see the spray.

I clicked on the second shot, and holy crap! That is pretty cool! Nice capture!

Thanks Slinger, this is one of those shots you get a cool bonus. I didn't see the pollen when shooting, but when I downloaded and checked it out, I was thrilled. Was he throwing the pollen on his back for transport? I never knew ...

That second picture is great. Nice capture, as always.
