Ideas and Imagery #36

Pressure on pollinators through herbicide use and other factors has threatened a process that is critical to food production.  Pollinators come in many different forms, but the bumblebee might be the most recognizable of them all.  Bumblebees are generally not aggressive and are fun to try and catch a shot of.  This shot was taken at f7.1, 1/1000 sec. at ISO 800.  They move fast, so it's important to have a fast shutter speed.  Next time you see a bumblebee, give it a break and let it do its work.
