A Glorious Mistake

This photo really was a mistake I almost threw away.  When I looked at the original all I saw was camera flare.  To make things worse I noticed a black dot where it shouldn’t have been.  But curiosity got the better of me and I expanded the photo to see what the black dot was.

It was our friend a honeybee.  You know, those rapidly vanishing insects that pollinate our crops.  Sadly Bayer and other companies that make neonic insecticides don’t care their product is killing massive amounts of bees.

Oh, and that bright spot isn’t the sun.  It’s actually lens flare.  Enjoy my oddball photo.
