Not every week allows the opportunity for a good walk on a sunny day but this week came up trumps, allowing a cool stroll through one of my favourite local woods on a hot day. Like many woods it has a varied history and this one features the remnants of ornamental driveways, still defined with rows of rhododendron. The colours were vibrant and the bees enthusiastically doing their thing, so I thought I’d use the opportunity to try to capture them in action.


Although not taken on a macro lens, I’m pretty pleased with the result.

Here are some specifics:

Focal length: 35mm
f 3.2
Exposure: 1/2,500
