You and the micro lens made a great pair in this capture Sea. I am glad you didn't get your nose stung. The clarity on the bee is phenomenal.
Good health to you and yours.

Beautiful close-up. Very well ballanced composition. Glossy look of main flower and even background flowers are beautiful. High technical and artistical quality photo.

I gotta hand it to you for getting the bee in sharp focus between what must have been for the camera, two tempting flowers upon which to focus.

Hi C.! Very nice shot of this bee, or is it a hoverfly!? It's funny that I had all those bee and wasp pics labeled hoverfly. I noticed that and it seemed wrong so I changed them all. What I did learn is that the bee has longer antenna and a different mouth, but the most common way to determine between the both are the wings. A bee has 4 wings and hoverfly 2. What a deal. I really like you photo and have faved it! Allen
