Bees

We’ve had a lot of wasps on here recently, so how about a sampling of bees now? Great Northern and Brown-belted bumblebees.
One of the leaf-cutters. Megachile genus bees carry pollen on their abdomen.
Eight-toothed Cuckoo Leaf-cutter.
Agapostemon genus.
Confusing Furrow Bee. Maybe.
Two-spotted Longhorn.
Is this a drop of water or nectar? Either way, this bee’s very long tongue was shooting through it over and over, lapping it up. I guess…

    Matt these butterfly photos are amazing as all your photos are. What is your goto camera?

      I have a Sony RX10IV. More capability than I know what to do with, and not light-weight. If I had the money, I’d have a SLR with separate telephoto and macro lens, but I don’t, so this is a good compromise.

      But, even with some camera producers cutting back, there are still a bewildering array of choices out there. Think about what you really want to do with a camera, read all the reviews, go with what your budget can afford. Always get at least one extra battery, because even a half day in the field will drain a full charge.
