These Honeybees, also known as Yellowjackets, become active towards end of August and into Autumn. Found this patch of yellow wildflowers in meadow where they have been last week or so in midmorning and taken a lot of macros of them.

Great shot with beautiful, high impact color. Well done.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here though - I think this is a hoverfly.

This is most incredible shot. The claraty is out standing. looking close at the bee with the existing lighting you see the hairs on the bee so well. Very Very good. Keep shooting

Beautiful pic, but I'm pretty sure this is neither a honeybee nor a yellowjacket; it's a fly, probably a hoverfly.
