Bumblebee on Sage – One of the many wonderful facts about having one’s yard reflect the natural habitat of the area is that it then attracts many different species of wildlife. We have been so lucky to have Bumblebees enjoy nectaring on our Texas Sage, Salvi greggii, since we first installed it. I have always thought that photographing hummingbirds was difficult. Keeping Bumblebees in the frame is next to impossible. Even this one is at rest, they never stay that way long. Mostly not long enough to get them in focus. I chased this bee and its friends around the yard for several minutes to get only a large handful of images that contained bees.
