18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Honey bee amongst flowers

This shot was taken at Swan Harbor gardens. I was photographing hummingbird moths and happen to capture this. There were lots of insects flying around preoccupied with the purple flowers in this small garden. I happen to capture this honey bee up close and was surprised at the clarity.
