[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Around 7.30 in the morning, this bee is already working hard.

The flower plant name is Mimosa pudica L. (Sensitive plant ไมยราพ). The plant is native to tropical America. It is a creeping annual and is a weed here in Thailand. The interesting characteristic of this plant is that the leaves fold up when touched.

Hello Jitti,
Very attractive capture of a Sensitive Mimosa flower being visited by a honeybee, both thre flower and the bee being sharp and set in a fine composition against a suitable dark natural BG.
It seems thethe sensitive plant has invaded the tropics all round the world.
Thanks and best wishes,

I love this picture!!! The bee busy at work is wonderful. The flowers and leaves are fantastic. Colors are beautiful - background is superb - details could not be sharper. I love the composition.
