[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
2011 - I closed with a bumble bee and I will start in
2012 - also with a bumble bee.

The picture was taken on Madeira Island where only 2 species of the genus Bombus occur.
I think that this is Bombus ruderatus.

I wish all my friends here all the best for 2012.

Hi Peter.
The subject is really amazing and rare. You have presented it very well too. I am impressed with 3D-looking of the image, crips sharp details of the cute insect and leaf, pleasant smooth BG and soft lighting. Perfect job. My compliments and best wishes in New Year.
