African Honey Bee
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The African honey bee (Apis mellifera scutellata) is a subspecies of the Western honey bee. It is native to central and southern Africa, though at the southern extreme it is replaced by the Cape honey bee, Apis mellifera capensis.|
Notice the yellow pollen already collected on the legs.
This photo taken handheld with a 20mm extension tube.

noticing the beautiful setting and, honestly, the lack of Depth of Field, I wonder why you chose to shoot at 1/4000 and f5. I believe 1/1200 and f/13 or around there would have given you much more dof and therefore a better focussed back and head
enjoy your weekend, cheers

Very nice close up study of the bee, and the beautiful flower in pale pink, nice to see the pollen is already collected, we must appreciate how hard these littel guys has to work to get us a spoon of honey :)
