The closer we get to insect life.. the more alien their world becomes!

This bee/ fly landed on my windowsill and just started licking the pollen off itself. It didn’t stay long, so this was the best shot I got (best of four shots). The colour of the fly and pattern of the eyes amazes me. Also, if you notice, it also has it’s tongue out.

All my work has been visually inspected for quality assurance. Your happiness with your new picture is very important to me, enjoy!

Here’s how the finished product will look like…

I’m a Canadian Photographer who previously owned a studio in Kunshan, China (just outside Shanghai), but recently returned to Canada to raise a family. Photography is my true passion and I enjoy learning all I can about it! I hope you enjoy my work and thank you for stopping by!

    Sorry I forgot to read your comments first, it made me think what a stunning shot, so clear so detailed, so much beauty hidden from normal vision, aren’t the mechanics of flyies and bees amazing.

    A fascinating & beautiful image, the eyes are especially glorious. The camera allows us to SEE when we LOOK and if we chose to, we can SEE the beauty of the tiny and often reviled creatures so essential to our own world.
