A bee in clover – photo of the week

A bee in clover

May your summer be spent in clover!

I originally took this week’s photo of a bee in flight over a clump of clover flowers at the end of May, and posted it on 3rd June, in 2014.

It’s hard to deliberately catch a bee in flight, so I’m not going to pretend this photo is much more than a result of happy chance. I did see a bee – a bumble bee – working this patch of clover and I pointed the camera at it. But beween the pointing and the focusing I lost the bumble. I didn’t find the regular bee till I was looking through the day’s photos on a computer screen.

I suppose this photo could have been snapped anywhere, but I actually took it in the park at Färjenäs on Hisingen in Gothenburg. For other photos from nearby go here and here.

Hard to see the bee? Look at the detail crop below.
