Rhododendrons at Playfair park – rhododendron ‘avenue’ at top with a scattering of petals at f6.3. Macro of a bumblebee chilling in a rhododendron – with its arm up, all casual-like as if to say, “I’m just sipping from this flower, spreading a little pollen on my thighs, taking a 5 millisecond breather before doing another 1000 more.” The trouble with bees is (a) they move fast and (b) they face into the flower so they show up anonymous and bottom-first in the photograph. The joy is they buzz and awkwardly trip and somersault over the stamens. F4.5 at 1/500 second.
