@ Bumblebee Collects Pollen

Location - Annecy City Center. Along the walkways next to the water you will see hanging flower baskets. That is where I took this image of the bumblebee and daisy.
Technical Challenges - The biggest challenge I had while taking this image was the lighting. It was an incredibly bright day. Remember the more you zoom the less light will go into your lense. Try and keep the ISO as low as you can. Whenever I can I keep mine at 100. The lower it is the sharper the image. I had the shutter speed at 1/640. Personally I wouldn't go any lower than 1/500. The bumblebee was still moving. By lowering the shutter speed too much you risk a blurry image. It's important to find the balance with your subject.
For the post processing tools I used for this image I used Lightroom.
This photo was taken in non other than France's Annecy. There is quiet a variety of things you can do here 🙂 check out my list below for my TOP 3 things to do in Annecy 🌟
1) Lac d' Annecy - Lake Annecy is a stunning, clean and bright blue lake. It's a great place to go to with s partner, friend(s), family or just yourself 💁 chill by the water, rent a boat, sun tan or walk along the lake
2) Vielle Ville - Check out the City Center of Annecy! Annecy City Center is unlike anything I have seen. When walking the streets you'll notice instantly the unique layout, bright colors and welcoming people. Two things I would recommend trying is their very well known mussels and frites and of course a scoop of glaces 😋
3) Check out some local hikes! Annecy is a city that happens to be right in the French Alps. Not only will it feel great trekking in nature but also a beautiful view of Lac d' Annecy 😊
