A year ago I took this image at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Easthampton, MA. I called it “Purple and Bumble” or “PB” for short. I love the violet and mint green combination – it makes me feel so good.
I revisited to the site yesterday on my walk through town – it’s been so hot and muggy out that I haven’t wanted to visit my favorite bee locations. It’s a pity really, I feel so out of touch with my sisters.
There were some bumbles on these flowers as well this year, but the plant was covered primarily in honeybees. Even better.

Have I talked lately about how much I love my Cannon 100mm Macro lens lately? You get less of the mint green here because I am so close to the bee, but the hairs on the buds! I chose to shoot at the most open aperture that my lens would allow (2.8) both because the 15 mph winds necessitated a fast shutter speed and also because I love creamy colored backgrounds.
And I also love that it can be “PB”…I’m just a little nostalgic like that.
