[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Apidae Bombus Terrestris- Bumble Bee.
We have a nest in our garden and after a few hours and several shots i managed to get this. This bee has a light dusting of mist from our lovely Cornish weather.
This is the best shot i have had with the Sigma 70-300 on the macro setting.
