The Pollinator is coming

Postby sidd finch » Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:09 pm

Our drought seems to over, the rains are subsiding and once again the feeling of spring is in the air. Not missing a beat the Honey Bees are out in force. Glad to see them come back. I am also very privileged to have the awesome voice of Mr Steve Grisetti provide narration.

As always comments and criticisms are welcome. :)

Makes one truly appreciate the beauty and wonder of what around us often goes unappreciated. Great job! :TU:

Thank you.

Although the video quality could have been a bit better this was a trifecta video for me. 1) Flying insects with Macro lens. 3) Plum Blossoms in bloom, And 4) Steve's voice adding the perfect touch to the video.

I understand the term "busy bee" I was using a mono-pod and camera standing on a ladder trying to follow these bees. And they are on it flying all over the place. Luckily the camera is small enough to slip through the branches but it is a fun challenge to try to record them.

My guess is that if someone was to observe they would see me standing on a ladder with a pretend sword trying to have an imaginary sword fight with a plum tree..... :ha:

Too bad a passerby didn't take video of you doing that.
...or did they? ;)

well if they did I am sure they would have called the local police to say they saw a crazy person off their meds having a sword fight with the trees.... hehe

I have not seen any flashing lights yet.

Great teamwork Steve & Sidd! :TU: The footage was fairly stable considering you were on a ladder with a monopod. Maybe Mrs. Sidd can film you get the video next time? :mrgreen:
