[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The photo was taken in north Israel >> Binyamina.
In one morning i took my camera and went for a short trip in one of Binyamina's gardens.
I saw a path of those yellow flowers and pick up my camera, I desited to wait on one flower and catch the insect while it working.
I wait for couple minutes until the insect hop to this flower and stand on it and than i took 2 pictures of him and run away so i wont get hurt :)
( Watch the legs, the legs work is very intresting )

Nitzan, Beautiful macro shot with great sharpness and DOF. Personally I would remove some of the right-hand side.
Good shot.
Greetings, Jan

Salut Nitzan!
Un excellent plan-rapproché de cette abeille sur cette fleur.
Une remarquable finesse des détails et une impressionnante profondeur de champ.
Un grand ouvrage: image et note.
