Bee and Orange Blossoms - shadow shot sunday

The orange blossoms are in full bloom.  I spent some time trying to get close enough to get a shot.  The buzzing sound of the bees and the sweet fragrance of the blossoms was hypnotic.

Great shot . . . I recently bought a new macro lens and am waiting patiently for the butterflies and bees to come and visit so I can try taking some pics.

these are fantastic shots - for their color and shadows. simply sensuous. I can almost smell that sweet fragrance. very nice. happy SSS.

The bee is truly busy, the nectar needed for nutrition in the swarming hive. She is so hard at work, she doesn't notice (nor care about) the photographer working at her craft. We viewers are happy of the unaware insect, because the capture is great! Bees and flowers say 'spring' better than anything!

You must have a great camera to capture those shots. They are such close up shots, I can see the detail of the bees and the flowers.
Thanks for sharing!!

Gosh you sure are brave to get that close to a bee. I do love bees but don't fancy their stings! Lovely lovely photos! And a sweet coincidence as I just planted some of those orange blossoms this morning. I hope they grow up to be as beautiful as yours :)
