My ability to focus is improving, but has a long way to go. I'm not sure why I keep trying to focus on bees when I still can't focus reliably on a flower, but I do. (I even tried focusing on bees in motion today, with, let's say, interestingly blurry results.) This was taken at the botanical gardens, which was buzzing with bees this morning. Every flower seemed to have a bee. This little guy's legs are covered in pollen.
After posting the original shot, I decided to crop it to enlarge the bee in case you don't feel like clicking on it to see the pollen up close. This little one is how it looked out of the camera. I don't have a zoomie enough lens to have shot the bee looking like it does above.
