Photo shoot with one of my honey bees

This morning, while still cool out, I found one of my honey bees hanging out on my barn. It was still too cool for her to find her way back to the hive and she was very calm.
 
I took a small twig and got her to climb aboard and transferred her onto a flower from a butterfly bush, clamped that into my helping hands tool and started my photo shoot 🙂
 
All photos are single shot ( no focus stacking ). I transferred her back to the hive when finished. #MacroPhotography #TimKelleyPhotography
