Just a few photos I took yesterday and today.
There were a pair of scarlet tanagers that were pretty upset. A baby had fallen out of the nest.. It is hanging out under a lilac bush. I hope it makes it. I got dive bombed by the mother The nest is probably 40 or 50 feet up in the oak somewhere.
Best viewed full size. Click to enlarge.
The male stayed way up in the tree. I used a 400mm lens.
I'm always amazed by the variation in colors of these honey bees. My hives are filled with mutts.
The focus isn't great & I washed out the tiny flowers on some of the shots, but the bees never stayed more than a couple of seconds on each one & then moved to another. That didn't leave me much time.
I didn't realize that flying bee was even in the frame, until I loaded it onto the computer.
These ladies are really pretty.
