The danger of the deep end.
Lens: FA50 1.7 Camera: K3 Photo Location: Back yard ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: alfa75ts, 4 Days Ago

The neighbours Bees keep trying to learn to swim in our pool, problem is they jump straight into the deep end and I have to pull them out and resuscitate them.

Anyway they finish up pretty dazed so I thought I'd try a macro shot or two. K3 with Pentax FA 50mm 1.7 on a gutter 2X TC.

Nice shot. Perfect color palette. Their numbers are falling so keep rescuing them. I pull a lot of them out of livestock watering tubs.

We need to find a plastic half as dense as water and create rafts that float like so:

Excellent detail! You need to teach the little critters to swim!
