The Bee and The Lemon Tree

102/366: The Bee and The Lemon Tree

I’ve been watching the bees pollinating our lemon tree the past few days and decided today to try to get a macro shoot of the bees.  I don’t own a macro lens, so I decided to use my 85mm and a tripod.  After capturing the bee in the frame I then cropped the image to make it a macro.  At first I was not using my tripod and the bee was a tad bit blurry, after adding the tripod, I was able to get a fast shutter and clear focus on the bee pollinating the lemon tree.
