Prepare for landing
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|From the family Cactaceae and genus Opuntia the species ficus-indica is quite common in Mexico, commonly named Nopal here in Mexico. This is the season where some are flowering and to my advantage having an apple orchard close by, they are frequently visited by bees. This bee in particular was swimming in pollen for several minutes in this flower and actually made repeated visits to the same flower. Although I’d like to have gotten this bee a bit more in focus I have selected this one due to the challenge of catching the bee at flight. I have many other pictures with the bee in the flower, but like economy states; the scarcest is the most valuable.|
You comments are very well appreciated.

I like Mexican flower and wild plants, here you did well timing of this bee around the flower, well lit shot and nice frame.
Beautiful is the last word that I can say for praise..
