Come Home with Me, Little Bee, It’s Warm There
Yesterday, the weather in Santa Fe finally felt cold. Down about freezing at sunrise with a bit of snow in town, cloudy all day with a high only at 40 degrees, which is about 30 degrees colder than the day before.
I went out with my macro lens to see what I could find, and I found this little fellow. He looked like he was huddled against a wall, hoping for some sun to warm himself. After viewing him through my macro lens, I really felt sorry for him. He wasn’t moving one little bit, which made using an f/20 on him to gain sharpness much easier, but still, I ended up wishing I could scoop him up and take him home where it was warm. Thanks for the photo, little guy. I hope you made it home safely.
The photo was taken with my 105mm macro lens at f/20.
I just want to add, that if you want to see a photo of a more lively bee (and I love these photos), check out this post from last month.
