Surprise in the image

posted on 14th of april, 2017

I took the following image of a humble bumble bee collecting pollen from a dandelion. When I put it on the computer and enlarged it when I got home I was pleased with the result...pretty good image of the bee covered in pollen. The surprise was the dandelions...I must have looked at thousands if not millions of dandelions in my life and I had never noticed the stamens. Maybe I need to be more observant!

About me

I have always worked outdoors and have started taking photo's of the places I go and views I see. There have been many times when i wished I had my camera with me but it's not always possible with work. I particularly like the colours of dawn and dusk and the best time for this is through the winter. I will hoping for some good shots again this year and I hope people will enjoy looking at them.
