Today’s selfie is un-BEE-lievable. We have a real busy bee and believe it or not this is an iPhone6 image.
Summer here in New Zealand has been a bit unsteady but threw me a good day this Saturday, and while we sat out on the deck with a cup of coffee, we spotted a magnificent bee on our heuchera plant!
On the heuchera, the leaves are low down and the flower stems are thin with very small flowers scattered at the top. I thought the flowers were far too small for a busy bee to collect from but check these pictures out.
The bee was having a great time collecting tiny bits of pollen, so I grabbed my iPhone hoping to grab a halfway decent shot of the lovely creature before it flew away.
This was ‘touch and go’ as getting close to a bee isn’t always a clever idea, and they are small so might not even come even come out in a smartphone picture!
I would not have believed the accuracy and clarity of these smartphone images and I am very impressed.
If you need to take pictures for social media, or a blog, your smartphone is the perfect and portable camera always in your pocket.
