He's a bit battered in the wings. Nice detail and pose from the bee.

We used to go to Bukit Melawati, back in the late 60's and very early 70's, to visit the old fort up there and to see the monkeys.

Hahaha, realy a little acrobate.
Hi Kean, this bee is lovely and beautiful.
You captured it in a nice moment.
I saw a similar one in Thailand "standing" in the air and watching me so interested because of the flashlight. But the shots weren't so good ;-( Thanks for your wonderful one
