Bees Out Today

One kind of bee was out today, gathering nector from two or three types of crocus (but not all). 
Yesterday on NPR's Science Friday, Ira Flatow posted a video and hosted the curator of the bee collection at the Museum of Natural History in NYC. He has been in that position for 51 years. It's worth tracing down the program.
I am trying out close-up rings on my camera. I apologize that the depth of field isn't broader. Amateur.


  1. Well, fascinating, amateur or not. Please tell Ed I enjoyed his latest blog essay. We walked the High Line when we visited my family last Christmas.

    PS: are you using Kenko extension tubes (or something similar) or a macro filter? The tubes give way better results than filters and they are reasonably priced.
