It was almost 10 months ago when I took my wife for a drive up Farmington Canyon. It's a steep climb up the side of a mountain with lots of switch backs. Last year I posted a photo of the road here. At one of the corners with a pull off I noticed some large beautiful thistles that I wanted to get some macro shots of. Just as I was getting ready the largest bumble bee I could remember ever seeing flew in and started to gather pollen. What luck. He was there and gone in about 4 seconds.
This was taken with my Panasonic point and shoot camera, before I had a DSLR. This year I plan to cover some of the same territory only with my DSLR. I have learned so much since then I'm pretty excited about getting there again.
