Bee Gathering Nectar from Hooker's Fairy Bells

Explore for May 2, 2008 #126 - Thank you!!!


A honeybee gathers nectar from Hooker's fairy bells. Thanks to imoongypsy and Will Neuhauser for the IDs! (see comments below)


How could you resist a wildflower named Hooker's fairy bells?


I was shooting in low light using a high ISO. I'm not happy with the sharpness here. All the other shots were even less sharp. I don't know enough about photography in general, my camera, and my lens to know whether I could have gotten a sharper photo under different conditions or different camera settings, or whether this lens just isn't as sharp as I want. If you have any suggestions, I would LOVE to hear them!
