Lily bees

We went on a strategic session for work to a guesthouse just outside Port Elizabeth the other day. During one of the breaks I chased bees around the lilies in the garden to try and get some nice shots. I could see some of my colleagues watching me in amusement, but I'm used to that by now.

  1. Those are beautiful - so clear, and the colours are bright. The stamens look as though they have been dipped in a pot of yellow hundreds and thousands!
