I have no idea how a bee would actually see the flowers on my balcony, so apologies to any bees reading this. These images are really a result of me playing around with Photoshop this afternoon. If you’re curious, after editing and cropping the photo, on a new layer I added a radial gradient (white to transparent), set the blend mode to ‘hard mix’ and then erased the area around the centre so the original photo on the layer below came through. Highly stylised and probably not bee-like at all, other than being taken with my camera 1-2cm from the flower.
I chose pansies and daisies for this post because the bees do seem to prefer these flowers.
And here’s a non-stylised bee, having a good old rummage in a camellia. Look at the size of that eye!
These photos are square, which can only mean one thing: it’s another month of Becky’s Squares! For July, the theme is Perspective.
