[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pollen loaded bee was just about to land on the flowers as I clicked and hoped for the best!!!

My shutter speed was not quick enough to capture the wings, but at least it's body is fairly clear.

I could not show any more of the left hand side, because what you see is what I got! No time for a good composition, just a click and hope! The leafy background puts it in context, I think.
Anyway, hope it looks okay.....

Cropped in Picasa2

A nice capture Vicky,
Not easy to get at all.
Good sharpness and the composition isn't too bad,the bee is placed nicely within the frame.
I recently got one at 1/1000 and you still cant see the wings,its amazing how fast they can beat 'em!
Good work,well done.


Fantastic stop action. The pollen laden legs are evidence that this is a busy bee. Well done.

Hi Vicky

The bee is perfectly in focus and that's the main thing! Very difficult to get right, I've been trying!!

Well Done
