perfect picture of the bumble bee with pretty good sharpness. In most cases, I did not succeed in obtaining suitable pictures of bumble bees: they are too busy.
Best wishes, Peter

Splendid macro work you have here!
I would like the remark here the very good flash filling - it makes the colors looks great and gives excellent contrast with the BG.
Alsi the sharpness is impecable, the POV is great and the diagonal compo is very beaitiful.
Bravo and TFS

Your close-up is very nice. I like its perfect colours, diagonal construction, excellent DOF and, as a result, expressive well blurred and colourful BG, Perfect done and TFS.

wonderful capture with a very nice DOF. The details are nice and sharp and OOF BG lets the subjects stand out very well. Great colors and a very nice composition.

""Apparently, such bees can navigate their way back to the hive from a distance as far away as 13km (8 miles).""
This may be in danger: allow me to add an alarming bit of news about bees!
Recent reports on unusually high beekills suggest that perhaps cell phones are to blame.
Are we ignorantly committing Apidae-cide?
Like you I like these humblebees which have tricks regular honeybees do not have.
Excellent PoV here of the bee on this knapweed(?).
It shows us so much more than just another photo of another insect... bee, b'fly, bug, what have you... Tfs, Jay
