New Macro Lens and Honeybees

Well, I got a nice starter macro lens (28-90mm) so I can get some super close bee photos.  I put it to work immediately.  Some of the honeybees were more willing to be photographed than others!


This bee is totally giving me the stink-eye.

  1. Becca, though I haven’t been able to attend the meetings, I want to tell you that you are doing a great job with your web site and I really appreciate the work you do look forward to the email notifications.
    “the bees know”
    What do they know? Well, we don’t know what they know because we’re not bees, if we were, we’d know, but we’re not so we don’t know, but they know.


  2. It is so great that you raise bees! I have seen very few for the past several years. I was shocked to see THOUSANDS on the sweet corn tassels last week. Where they all came from, I have no clue!

    1. Wow. It’s possible that a beekeeper has moved some hives near the corn field. Though, I don’t know how useful bees are to corn since corn is wind-pollinated.

      We have seven hives right now. Love them.

  3. Excellent site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion
    forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?

    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get advice
    from other knowledgeable people that share the same
    interest. If you have any suggestions, please let
    me know. Many thanks!
