Hello. This is digital photography, in the double bridges park, monarc sanctuary, Santa Cruz CA. I tried for bees in trumpet vines in Patterson CA but only got bee posteriors. It took about 10 tries at the park but I like this one, two side views of bees. Thanks for looking. Charlotte

I do like the dramatic lighting in this - love to see strong contrasts! :D

I've picked blackberries, but have not seen such pretty blooms on them.
Pretty photograph.

Lovely photograph. You have a lot of patience waiting for the bees to turn so we can see their whole bodies. It took me a little bit of looking, but I finally spotted both of them. :D

I agree with Maureen about the dramatic lighting in your photo.

Well caught! I've never seen a blackberry in flower - very pretty.
