Canon EOS REBEL XS, Canon 50mm 1.8 II lens, ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/250 sec.
  While catching some dewy rose bushes at the Tellico Plains KOA on Saturday, this little bumblebee decided to land and grab breakfast from the exact rose I was photographing.  He wasn't concerned with me at all.
  Normally, when you get closer and move yourself into better position, insects will nervously fly away thinking you are a danger to them. This one let me move all over and get better angles at him. I took several shots and this one was my favorite.


  1. Wow, really neat. Beautiful photo.

  2. I'd have to say it sounds like he was posing for you Jerry! What a great shot here, my friend... great colors and the little bee friend there is awesome! I have to admit, almost all the time when I try to get shots like this, the little being in question seems to run or fly away... do you think I'm an ominous looking Toad?

  3. Cool shot man. Feel lucky, It's very very hard to find bees like this in neck of the woods. They all died out :(
