again I have to tell you that it is still winter ;-(
So cold today, -11 C in the morning, brrrrr.

Winter is definitly too long now - I'm longing for springtime and specialy for the insects - I miss them so much.

Here's a nice little bee for you sitting on Sedum.
IMO it looks a little like many tiny tulips ;-)

I hope you like it, have a nice day

Hello Sabine,
What a lovely little Bee very nicely captured on a pretty Sedun flower. It is really warming as we've had snow here all day long!! I'm sick of winter and like you long for spring and green colours instead of white! We've now had a lot of snow here in the south for two months, this hasn't happened for years. If we didn't have family and friends here I'd move to the tropics!
Many thanks and keep warm! Ulla

Super Bild, mit schnönen Farben.

Hi Sabine. This is such a pleasing picture to see on a dark damp winters night. As you say spring can not come to soon. You were able to take a first class close up of the bee. All with fine detail and bright colours. well taken TFs.

Hi my BEF Sabine,

The details are so precise and impressive. Has quite a 3D effect to it. Inspiring shot my friend.
TFS and have a nice night!

The feeling of summer is great here Sabine!
I can almost hear this Honey bee buzzing with activity on the hemp agrimony flowers.
The quality of this macro is superb with great sharpness, colours and lighting. This is a nice relief from the long snowy winter that we have here too!
Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Sabine,

This little Bee is just wonderful! Colors, details and textures are marvelous. I love the pose on the pretty flowers. I hate to tell you this but it's almost spring here this week - who knows what next week will bring. But today is sunny and 70F. This is desert so we'll go down about 35 degrees tonight.

Hola amiga,
Outstanding macro,
colors and great focus,
attractive pic.

Hallo Sabine
ich vermisse die Insekten und Schmetterlinge auch sehr, wir haben auch noch Schnee und kaltes Wetter und daher freut mich dieses Bild sehr, es riecht nach Schönes Wetter und Sonne, es ist staunend scharf, die farben sind herrlich
Grüsse Jacqueline

Hallo Sabine,

Breathtaking macro shot, fantastic sharpness. Wonderful color tones, even if they're a little oversaturated. Lights and composition are superb. I don't like the green canvas, but it's personal and doesn't ruin the beauty of the photo. Tfs.

Here in Hungary we still have snow and cold, but the weather forecast says there will be around +10 Celsius next week, so I'm in "spring-waiting" mode, too. :)

Friendly regards and hugs, László
