|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The purpose of this photo was just another macro of a bee feeding on a flower. It is a macro all right but I forgot to turn off the flash. I thought: "dam auto flash". |
But when I uploaded the photo to my computer and saw this glowing pollen on the bee I loved it. I didn't notice when I took the photo that the bee was carrying so many pollen grains.
Pollen grains are like small sticky balls that the flowers use to polonaise other flowers and usually these grains are carried by insects. Most flowers can auto-polonaise themselves, because flowers have both sexes but using the insects and the wind to spread their pollen is the way to make new generations and continue the evolution.
There is a very ancient symbiotic relation between bees and flowers.
Haven't made any adjustments on the photo, this is the original with a crop.

This looks nice, although a little to bright, next time I would suggest using a less brighter flash or use a brighter exposure without the flash... but thats just my opinion. Cheers Josh Lewis.
