Bees on (mostly) apple

I’ve been playing with light…in the past, I’ve been drawn to almost underexposed photos, and these are a lot more toward the overexposed end of the spectrum.

I also wanted to show more context of the bees foraging in some of these photos, let me know what you think!

PS. Most of these are apple flowers but there’s another Rosaceae thrown in there somewhere, just FYI
