  • This was shot at downtown Santa Cruz, California. This is a realtively small town in Northern California and what I mostly like about this town is a very nice flavor or both urban as well as some rural vibes. I am always being a deep animal world lover (starting from wild aninals to birds and insects). During this strange time all over the World, I am pretty much stuck within the town and while roaming within familar places, I started only now to disciover that so many things that I haven't noticed all these times that I am spend in this town. In one of such exploration I found this bee and captured it in the frame. I have now even more admiration towards the Nature. This was shot with a Panasonic LUMIX G9 camera with a Olympus 60mm f/2.8 lens
