Butterflies and Bees Gallery
Bees and butterflies have taken such a hit with their declining populations. Taking the time to watch them is a gift. So when the opportunity to be still and photograph them arises, I’m grateful 🙂
Capturing photos and images of butterflies, bees and an occasional ladybug requires and incredible amount of patience! Something fluttering or buzzing about does not stay still for very long. But when the moment is right, they can deliver!
Bees definitely need to warm up before they begin their pollinating work day – especially in the cool spring mornings. Once warmed up, watching them as they get to work on the various flowers is quite amazing. I especially enjoy watching them on the bright pink Cholla cactus blooms and on the Cleopatra Foxtail Lilies.
The butterfly photos were a golden opportunity via one of the local Botanic Garden’s seasonal butterfly exhibits. It was both a learning and photo op experience. Thankfully they tend to stay still a bit longer than the bees!!
Below is a collection of unique photos of butterflies, bees and ladybugs on various flowers and plants taken with an art photography lens which yields unique, soft effects.
Most images found on this website are available for purchase as art prints and wall decor in a variety of mediums. If you require assistance in selecting the ideal piece of art for your home, office, or studio, please contact me with your inquiry. I’d be happy to help!
