FP: A 'lemonade' shot - Shadow of exiting insect
Featured September 23
Featuring a focused shadow of an unfocused bee. I'd been photographing the bee dining on cosmos nectar. I rarely keep my camera set on 'continuous auto-focus', and was firing off a burst of shots when the bee made a sudden departure. Although the camera didn't maintain focus on the bee, one shot managed to catch its shadow nicely centered on the flower petals. You can't plan these things. I was unhappy about losing focus on the bee, but decided to keep the shot for its unusual BIF (bee in flight) shadow - lemonade from lemons.
