I cannot tell you how terrified I was taking this photo. The bee was enormous, and even though I was using a zoom lens (100mm), I was still standing a bare arm’s length from it. But I had a bee in my bonnet – pun intended! – about getting it in the picture with the flowers.
This spring photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge was shot in the lovely garden of Casa Ana, a guest house in the Alpujarras in southern Spain. While I was scrolling through Ana’s site, I saw a couple of my photos on her garden page. How lovely. I had forgotten that I had given her a set of my images to use. It’s made my day !

REALLY appreciate your bravery!!!
All in the name of art. I’m glad it didn’t give me cause for regret though!
Nice shot. In photography, always got to be ready to run. 🙂
You know it!
What we do for our art 🙂 Good for you!
Indeed. At the time, I thought, “ooh, I might not see a bee quite so big again.” !!!
Lovely, well worthy of danger 🙂
Thanks, although I wasn’t quite so sure at the time !
Stunning photo – it’s as if it was meant to… BEE, lol!!! 🙂
Love the pun!!!

Bees are not in the mood to sting you, otherwise they ll loose their life….
Now that I know that mosquitoes are the animal the most dangerous for humans, bees seems very sympathiques to me
I wish that I had known that about bees at the time ! And I have to agree with you about mosquitos !
