Feels like sum­mer. It’s tricky to get good depth of field and over­all sub­ject sharp­ness with a macro shot, but Cal has done a good job. The clean, un­clut­tered and cheer­fully coloured back­ground of this im­age lets the sub­ject pop out of the frame, and the off-cen­tre com­po­si­tion fur­ther en­hances the im­age. It’s also top­i­cal. Many bees are head­ing for ex­tinc­tion be­cause of the use of pes­ti­cides. And here is a bee per­form­ing an es­sen­tial ser­vice by pol­li­nat­ing plants, and show­ing us how, with­out bees, most of our crops will fail.
