What a fluffy bee he is Bev.
Perhaps he is a novice see and still learning the ropes on how to get where he should!!
Good shot, very impressive photo.
And don't worry about the warm weather - it's improving down here. And I'm pleased you had a good weekend.

Though a little soft, this is a fine capture of a Ginger-coloured Bumblebee that I believe is Bombus pascuorum.
Your observations about how it gets at the pollen and nectar are interesting and indeed some cheat by forcing their way into the flower: good title!
Thanks for sharing this fine contribution,
Have a good week,

Well, I guess there's no right or wrong way for that bee to get what it wants!
Nice notes for a nice picture that lacks a little bit of sharpness. But this is well compensated by the overall atmosphere, the fine lighting and the beautiful colours.

Beverly Robinson, HI. Nice to hear that it is nice and sunny in England. Lancashire is a beautiful county and I spent two years close to it in Lytham St Annes for my A-level. I can tell you that the sun was rather tricky there at times. This macro work is brilliant. Very good lighting exposing the uback against fine lighting. Well framed against muted background. Well done and TFS. Regards. Jusni

This is an interesting composition in beautiful colours! A well-timed capture of the Bee showing its wings in a fine position. It is a bit 'soft' but it does look lovely and fluffy!! I remember seeing them struggling on the Lupins in my previous garden!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

What a cute close-up of a charming fluffy bee. Petals of flower create an amazing surroundings for this little beauty. Bravo. So refined art work. My compliments.
