I went to check up on how the bees were stocking up on winter stores today, and thought it would be a good opportunity to get some pictures. Unfortunately, I forgot to take the batteries for one of my cameras and as a result, mixing lenses and cameras meant I had to shoot in manual.
If you’ve ever tried to shoot macro in a bee suit with no autofocus, you wont be surprised to know that 95% of the photos were out of focus I did however manage to get 3 ok ish pictures and luckily we can see the bees stocking up on yummy pollen which is a good indication of bee health. Hopefully the weather will be good enough on friday for me to get some better pictures. In the mean while, here are a few from today.
