This busy bee clearly needs to wear protective sunglasses in his daily job:-)

    they do look like those retro ray ban sun glasses. that’s an awesome macro shot!!!

  • Adrian, ray ban – yes, that’s what they reminded me off:-) I was trying to take an “artistic” shot of the flower when this bee buzzed into view. Just managed to get a sweet spot in focus before he was off again. Pleased you like it. K
