I used my new 10x filter lens on my 24-70mm lens for this shot. I am definitely enjoying the new details I get from it.

This Honey Bee looks as though it is really enjoying its job.

This is from wiki:

Honey bees (or honeybees) are a subset of bees in the genus Apis, primarily distinguished by the production and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests out of wax. Honey bees are the only extant members of the tribe Apini, all in the genus Apis. Currently, there are only seven recognised species of honey bee with a total of 44 subspecies,[1] though historically, anywhere from six to eleven species have been recognised. Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the approximately 20,000 known species of bees. Some other types of related bees produce and store honey, but only members of the genus Apis are true honey bees.

Nice macro shot of a Bee on a flower, Elena.
The focus around the face of the subject is razor sharp.
I like the composition too.

Hello Elena,
A wonderful close-up shot of this hard working Honey Bee. The petals are a little blown out, but I have the same problem with all white subjects like this. The head of the bee shows amazing detail and beautiful natural coloration. An attractive presentation Elena!!
