Bee in the Garden, West Sussex

Bumble Bee, West Sussex – August 2021

Bees are harder to photograph than you might think (I’ve written that before – I know). Perhaps informed by Disney and their slightly chubby appearance, I tended to think of them as rather leisurely, but as I tried to follow their movements, I came to realise how purposeful they are: every movement they make is for gathering nectar or moving on to the next flower. They are tireless. And they work without anyone directing them, although I know they do an intricate dance back at the hive to tell other bees where there is nectar.

I don’t think I would be a good bee, but I admire them.
