B is for…

Bee or butterfly, of course. A selection of shots showing competing species after pretty much the same thing from the same place. I was focused on the female Large White (Pieris brassicae), when the White-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus lucorum) drifted into shot. The butterfly seemed unperturbed, so I carried on shooting until (the final image) it decided to move on.

All images Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/800 sec, f/10, 400mm at ISO 400


  1. Nice set of photo's Tim - where did you get all that lovely light!!

  2. It's been a day of glorious sunshine here, with only intermittent showers. In fact, we desperately need rain – and lots of it.

  3. Great shots, I love Bumblies!
