Wednesday Wings

Bee on purple aster

Bees and I share a passion for asters

Today’s Wednesday Wings is the other kind of wings, the one on insects. We’re having a wonderful September or a way too hot one, and at least the bees are enjoying it.

Way too light. See the opposite of a black hole in shape of a butterfly

Can’t show you my face, I’m eating

Yes, we’ve got tons of golden rod here as well. The bees seem to like it

What does the colour look like to a bee?

    The third is my fave, but beautiful pictures all. The focus effect is interesting in the second.

    Nom, nom, nom.
    They’re all so bright and pretty that I can’t pick a favourite, but the bee on the drooping goldenrod looks like he’s surfing.

    The second goldenrod is my favourite too. As for the first… cabbage butterflies and exposure, exposure and cabbage butterflies, always the same dilemma. Those critters are the very definition of bright white.

    Argh, my eyes! All the happy colours!
    I love the first photo, the fuzziness and mistiness with the overexposed contrast make a very interesting picture. The second goldenrod shot has got perfect emphasis, though -- practically no background at all! Plus it looks a lot of fun. I’m enjoying the perspective in the pink flower photo, too. Puts you right in the action! Magic.
