My sweet autumn clematis is just coming out of full bloom. We had quite a few beautiful sunny days this month, and there were dozens of bees making good use of the white honey-scented flowers. I went out with my macro one day and got as close to the bees as a I could – they were so drugged by the flowers they didn’t even notice me. It’s tricky to do close-up shots without a tripod, but I needed to be able to move quickly to keep up with the bees. Fortunately the light was excellent.
