The honey bee in this shot, taken yesterday, is about 14 feet off the ground in the middle of ivy growing on a pergola. Its wings are beating at 11,000 times per minute along with around 500 other bees in this ivy. The buzzing is very loud. I’m standing on a step stool with a 50mm SLR–bees are whizzing by me. This is nuts. But I take the photo regardless.
