Well all right then, I actually got another shot of a bee flying in his universe of lavender. For the technical amongst you all-- both of these were shot at 1/4000th of a second shutter speed, still not good enough to completely stop the wing motion of the bees. I'm happy with the amount and the quality of the blur that I got.
It was much more difficult to get these closeup shots of a bee in flight. They seem to really like the lavender in the front yard. Click on it for a larger view, or buy it here or here.
