This tree reminded me of a Dr. Seuss character

I sat here watching this bee for two minutes. He was literally taking a bath in this flower. I've never seen a bee do this before.

Here he is somersaulting one of many times inside the flower. It was comical to watch. He left covered in pollen.

I bought the Canon 18-55mm IS lens, these are the first shots with it. I like this lens a lot. I also bought the 50mm f/1.8 which I'll be trying out tomorrow...

revenant Ah, bloody bees, always getting wasted. Never a thought for tomorrow...

Enjoy your new lenses. I thought the 18-55 came as a kit on your camera. Anyway, your 50 will serve as an excellent portrait lens, as it behaves like a 80 mm portrait lens. In my experience, it's best to avoid the wide-open aperture (too much chromatic aberration and some nasty fringing in bright situations). From 2.8, it's great.
