gathering purple pollen

purple tansy flowers and purple pollen

Even after you learn how,  it doesn't make easy.  It is a lot of fun.

Re: gathering purple pollen

You have to take care on background too. Sometimes fence made the photo interesting but when it seems to be oversight it cannot to be there.

Re: gathering purple pollen

I would have preferred no fence in the photo but it is so hard to get a 4mm bee in focus as it's looking for a landing spot that the bee is the most important.  It still takes me a lot of shots, partly because of shutter lag and view finder lag.

The other factor for me is the short time that I can spend in the Australian sun.  Queensland is the skin cancer capital of the world.  One in four Australians will have skin cancer some time in their life.  I have more than I can count.

This is the last one I had removed.  This is after half the stitches are removed.  Photo taken by the nurse with my phone.

I don't spend much time in the sun.  I will always us a hat.

Re: gathering purple pollen

I cannot say that i would believe you are going the right way. Health is more important than flying insect even if you take perfect photo.
