Many of my photos ‘happen’ while shooting something else.
Earlier today I was having more fun with the chipmunks (and missed a really cool shot of a grey squirrel and ‘munk facing off – grrr!) when I spotted this little bee warming his wings on the marigolds.
Hmmm, that could be something, I thought.
So, I snapped a few frames but, he really wasn’t doing anything particularly interesting and he wasn’t the “cute-little-bumble” type bee but rather the “nasty-yellow-jacket” kind. (Nothing against the yellow jackets, but folks tend to like the fuzzy-wuzzy bees best). 😉
Anyways, I moved my lens to scan the other marigold blooms and noticed that one of the flowers looked like a giant golden-orange golf ball sitting atop a tee.
Click, click, click and boom! Just like that we have today’s image.
If every day could go this well, that would be great!
