Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Bee Benefits” by Linn Smith

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day by Linn Smith is a colorful portrait of a bee hard at work gathering pollen for the hive.

“Taken in my back yard, a bee makes a choice selection for pollination. Bees work exceptionally hard for their pollen as it is a crucial source of protein,” writes Smith.

This image was captured with a Canon 5D camera and a Canon 100mm macro lens, Manual mode 1/500 sec, f/5.6, at ISO 800.

See a larger version of the photo in the Shutterbug Photo of the Day gallery here.
