Busy bee

Bee on flower

My husband took this today with the macro lens. I think he did a grand job of it!

oooh my goodness, I don't think I've ever had the opportunity to be THAT up-close-and-personal with a bumblebee...VERY COOL shot! Thanks for posting.

What makes this so purple? Is this a natural out of camera photo or photoshopped? It is really lovely...but I am curious to know.

Mary said...

Wow, that is terrific! It's so interesting to see them really up close -- what beautiful wings!

Yipes! And, quite a fancy fur collar there.

I just put a bee & hibiscus pic on my blog too. Two things are obvious... I'm not a pro & I need a better camera :-)

This is an amazing shot!
