The blooms only stay on our weeping cherry for about a week every spring--this year there was only one warm day in that week--they certainly took advantage of it...

You have captured these white blooms (and bees!) so well. We had some white blooms but I had trouble getting the image I was after. My favorites in your wonderful series are #1 and #4. I just love the softness of the blending of the bee and flower in #4.

Crabby great images, the bees must be as difficult as the humming birds I did last fall? By the way are those CRAB apples? Jeff

Thank You All

Rich--Thank you--that softness is what I love so much about the LBO (esp. at f2.8)

Kath--Thanks much indeed--glad I had the chance--got some more of just the blossoms the next day--hopefully I'll have time to process and post them soon.

Q-Man--TeeHee--Nope, just our fleeting, weeping cherry. Great to here from you. Hope you are well. As difficult as your hummers? I highly doubt it. This didn't require the three P's of Quailman, just a little boldness (possibly stupidity) and getting right up in their faces. I will say though that your hummer shots from last year are the reason for my spring/summer-get-lots-of-shots-of-bees-and-wasps-challenge-to-myself! Thanks for the inspiration.
