p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The Last Bee


The shots were taken in the dead of a cold night with a reflector under her, so there was less shadow below. It was just a piece of paper attached to the lens by elastic, a bit clumsy really but it worked to a point. I bumped her with it and she protested by spreading her legs that way, as if to say ĎIím a bigger mouthful than I first looked, and you could choke on my sharp pointy bitsí.

They do that when disturbed at night, if itís cold enough that they donít fly off to the light, make themselves look bigger. Many creatures do it, cause themselves to appear bigger than they are, or an uncomfortable mouthful, until the threat is gone.

Itís a working strategy people also employ when feeling threatened. Nature Ö itís our nature after all.

Mark,

An excellent set.

The second and third show what looks like legs extended to fend you off, something Bumble Bees do, even on a warm day, in sunlight.

Thanks for comments all, appreciated.

We don't have bumblebees here but I know, many creatures do the same. It's our nature to inflate or diminish appearance to meet threat.

Wonderful details, those eyes are really sweet to see the pattern in. Excellent lighting and colors are dramatic! Fine set.

Excellent captures, showing plenty of details! I am curious about the aperture and shutter speed used, Mark. Would you share the exit data, please? Thanks!
