Honeybees & Spring Blossoms

Hello, dears! I was hoping to do a “Recent Art” post or maybe a post about the old letters, but unfortunately I don’t have enough time (or Wi-Fi) for either. But don’t worry, hopefully those will be next! Until then, I have some more spring-y pictures for you! I absolutely LOVE this photoshoot and I hope you will too. 🙂

There are a ton of redbuds at our new farm and the surrounding country. Sometimes the side of the woods looks pink with all the blossoms! We also have two gorgeous redbuds in the yard of the big house and the one especially just looked perfect this year… maybe it usually does? But this is the first year I’ve seen it, and it’s gorgeous. ❤

AHHH IT’S SO PRETTY.

I got a few pictures with my macro lens. This one is one of my favorites from the whole shoot!

It’s neat to see how complex the tiny blooms are close up.

The look kind of like slippers with huge bows on top or something. XD

There were absolutely a ton of bees buzzing around the blossoms, which was a bit, um, scary, especially when I used my macro lens and stuck my camera inches away from my subject. O.o But no worries, I didn’t get stung. 🙂 I think they were too focused on the nectar.

Their wings are so delicate!

Heh heh, this guy looked a lot less delicate than the rest of the bees.

You can see the pollen sac super well in this one.

I don’t know why there’s a spot in the middle of its “fur,” but I thought it was interesting.

I love how you can see the bee getting ready to land in this one!

The 50mm lens I have makes such amazing bokeh. ❤

I tried to crop this, but it ruined the nice composition, so I didn’t after all. Oh well. 🙂

And we’ll end with these two pictures. I don’t know WHAT happened with this photo, but I think it looks kind of neat? Too bad I didn’t get a clearer picture of the bird, though. :/

Ahh, so pretty, don’t you think? ❤ I can’t WAIT to move in!

And that’s all for now! Thanks for reading, dears, and I hope you enjoyed the photos! Do you have redbuds or other blooming trees where you live? What’s your favorite part about spring?
