Whenever I have my macro lens on my camera I seem to be irresistibly drawn to bees, like bees to honey. No matter what else I am shooting during the summer, I always seem to have some images of bees interspersed among my other photos. Here are some of my recent favorite bee shots.

The Athenree and nearby Waihi Beach community have taken on a challenge to plant over 9000 plants at the wetland over winter.

This work is part of a multi-year project to return farmland to wetland habitat for threatened native animals.
