[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Pakistan's smaller honey bee on a rose flower collecting nectar in the early morning sun. Its honey is collected from bee-hive twice a year in a natural way, without harming the bees and is considered quite expensive and very good for health. In Islam honey is one of the natural product which was recommended by our Holy Prophet Muhammad(May Peace Be Upon Him)as a good treatment for many diseases. So people do take it with special religious fervor, for this element is never missing in its usage. Taking religion out of it even then honey has many medicinal values....thanks for listening.Hope friends will like the photo.

Hello Syed,
A beautiful photo of this tiny bee and flower. Very good detail with bright vivid colors and good DOF. I too like honey and use it daily in my tea and on my cereal. Thanks for posting such a wonderful photo and for your informative notes.
