Flight of the Bumble Bee

Once upon a time, a bumble bee was busy harvesting strawberry nectar. Bumble bee was no ordinary bee; it could not fly despite having wings.

But then, the bee saw from the corner of its eye something moving very quickly

Oh no! It was a bee-killer!

However, bumble bee quickly did a leap to avoid the projectile from piercing it.

Bumble bee managed to mount the back of the hideous monster:

However, the offender started to move vertically. Bumble bee was clinging for dear life.

Unfortunately, bumble bee could no maintain a hold, and fell to its doom

Background: Earlier today when I was grabbing something from the kitchen, I noticed a dead bee near the ledge. I decided to do some practise shots using it and my new camera. Please do not expect anything remotely professional from me for the next few months as I get to grips with the camera.

P/S. The first picture can be found in my Deviantart page. Just created :) Feel free to bash me... constructively. Cheers!

  • The signature is very annoying :/

    Make a watermark or something, and if you're geeky enough, sign it within the file. Don't ask me how, I know it's possible but I don't know how.

  • ling: hehheh ;)

    trav: the best I know right now is to emboss, which is practically the same with what I did, just blended in a bit more naturally. At any rate, sorry, but I just have to do it to prevent issues with others claming my pictures.

  • Hey, i find it vaguely disturbing that you found the time and effort to manipulate a bee's carcass around :)
