Bumblebee On A Plant

Bumblebee working on a plant

I shot this photo in the garden. We have a lot of bumblebees in the garden due to all the flowers and plants. It would be a paradise for macro photography. Now I still need to work with the kit lens, it’s not optimal as I can not get very close to insects or flowers, because then I can’t focus anymore. But in this case I tried to get close as possible, at home I cropped the image to get even closer. It’s not too bad I think.

    1. The original image was less sharp. But the image quality was good enough so that I was able to sharpen the image with Lightroom with good results. I also added a little bit of clarity to the image. To be honest, I have bad luck with most close-up shots too, it’s just this image that is really ok, but other than that, my kit lens is really bad for close-ups most of the time.

    1. Haha, yes they are… in the afternoon you see some of them falling to the ground, they fall out of the flowers because they are full of pollen, and they have a hard time to fly… looks funny 😀
