Hi Victor
What a wonderful capture this great macro!

Hi Victor
Great sharp macro!
I like the wonderful eyes of this lovely bee!
Good work!

Hi Victor,
it's a lovely shot - and I'm sure you don't mind - but it's not a bee, it's a hoverfly.
You can see it at the eyes, bees have smaller eyes, those big eyes always tell you that you have a fly in front of you.
I love those spotted eyes so much, a wonderful moment, thanks.
Enjoy the day
