Refuelling by Greybeard

I captured this honey bee ‘refuelling’ on 22nd September 2010. It was very patient and allowed me to take five shots of it, either that or there was plenty of nectar.
Canon 350D
1/125 sec
standard 18-55mm lens
flash used
I believe the flower was a cosmos

I am not an artist but but have dabbled with wood, clay, and paint over the years andand of course photography. My aim with the camea is to only use photo editing programmes to ‘tweak’ the photo, is a fraction too dark or light, to to crop and occasionally slight sharpen to highlight a particular feature.
RedBubble is inspiring,and when I see the quality of all the art produced by its members I realise how much I have to learn.
