Pollen Hawk

Austin, Texas

This was a pretty fun photo to get. I was chasing these bees around for a long time trying to find the right combination of 1) good composition and 2) a bee actually holding still long enough in said composition. Eventually this guy buzzed into an area with a lot of light reflecting off the brick wall, which made for a nice warm glow and complimented the green vegetation. And, somehow, he struck this pretty classic pose just long enough for me to catch him in the act.

Thanks, bees!
