    Oh wow! Wow! All that comes to mind is “WOW!”

  • Thank you very much indeed; your support is greatly appreciated. I must have taken a hundred photos of this fellow as he flitted from flower to flower (some of them multiple times). This was the one shot that seemed to turn out.

    Seen some close up Bees but this is CLOSE lol Excellent capture!

  • Many thanks for your kind comment. At that magnification, the DOF is very thin, so shooting handheld with any kind of breeze becomes rather hit-and-miss.
