The Flight of the Bumble Bee

This is the first time I set all my camera settings to get what I have never got before. A fast speed, a highish ISO and good focus.
This busy little bee didn’t have a chance! I have caught him in flight for the newly opened rhododendrons!
Three Good Things;
1. Bought a climbing rose for an empty space beside the fence - full fragrance, its says!
2 John cut the sides of the hedge today so beautifully! He seems to be so happy when he has done something good in the garden!
3. Found a beautiful melody in my music scores called, “Remember my Forgotten Man’.. copyright 1933. I have now played it 5 times! https://youtu.be/FGfEDlVbM8o
Lovely lighting and colours

Yes, great melody... and some deeply moving lyrics - and we still haven't learned anything.

Nothing like a good day in the garden while you are in the mood, very satisfying! He will be proud every time he opens the curtains in the morning! You do try everything with your camera!

@happypat He keeps going to the window to look at the view and his nicely cut hedge! Taken years to work out what to do with camera!

That must be very satisfying. He is perfectly caught in flight.

@phil_howcroft He appears to be flying with only one wing! Clever!

Great timing and great title. I know how the bee feels, I only have one wing too.

@onewing I have two wings - on my upper arms! No good for flying though!

Wonderful capture with great timing!

@ludwigsdiana I think its beautiful too, Diana - set in a minor key which is a bit sad but a lovely melody!
