Detailed Description

Elderberry...Sambucus nigra in this case....Always listed as a good bee plant, but despite all the bloom I have never been that impressed by the bee coming and going on this plant. But they do bloom over a more extended period than some more bee centric berry bushes. Pictures and plants by Helen Lowe Metzman. Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.0, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 200 USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
