[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the bumble-bee species
Megabombus pascuorum
- family: Apidae

German: Ackerhummel

Usually, these insects are very busy and it's difficult to obtain acceptable pictures.
But this specimen took a rest and it was not disturbed by me: late season, lower temperatures and diffuse light due to clouds also have their advantages!

Hi Peter,
A lovely capture of this beautiful bumble bee. Excellent sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hallo Peter,

Hmmeln sind schwierig zu portraitieren, weil sie einem eigenlich immer den Hintern entgegenstrecken. Aber Dir ist es gelungen, eine Hummel als Mini-Koala darzustellen, und das in Deiner unnachahmlichen Technik (1/100 sec und trotzdem diese hohe Schärfe). Nur Menschen mit einem sehr guten Gewissen können eine so ruhige Hand haben :-)

Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht Dir
Dieter

  • Great

Hello Peter,
Beautiful photo of this bumble-bee in well saturated colours and excellent sharp details. It looks if its afraid of falling from the branch. Great POV, DOF, composition and blurry BG.
Regards,
Peter

A stunning macro, Peter, with just the right exposure and perfectly saturated colours!
