Blue-banded Bee, Rajkot, India by Bhavya Joshi

Picture Story

Spring flowers attract bees, My backyard becomes live with small wilderness. Th blue-banded bee is the most difficult bee to capture in flight, especially with their zig-zag movements and activeness. To freeze the wings you need a high shutter speed and pure focus to concentrate on their movement. It took me more than an hour in my backyard to follow them, getting just a couple of frames that I was satisfied with.
This was taken handheld with a macro lens, with a little cropping necessary for some detailing.
