This bumblebee was busy collecting nectar while I was busy taking his photo at a community garden in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (8/8/10). He cooperated perfectly for me to get an awesome capture of his compound eyes.

The bumblebee has a compound eye and is formed of a large number of individual hexagonal units called ommatidia.

This image is also available at Shelley Neff at Fine Art America in a wide variety of framing and matting options.
