Yesterday I was visiting some of the gardens in Sittard and had my Sony 100mm / 2.8 with me and while I was shooting the flowers this bee flew into my shot.

To be honest I haven’t even seen it right there because it happened so fast.

And it was in the middle of the day when the Sun is too bright. I simply couldn’t see anything on the screen.

Looking through the viewfinder wasn’t an option because of the restricted space I had.


Later, when I scrolled through the photos I saw it.

It got me by surprise.

It was sharp and the bee in focus.

Luckily I had my settings right and could freeze the action.

One of those lucky days I would say…


Keep shooting…

…and have a lot of fun.
