Bees love waterlilies. I always find bees collecting nectar on waterlilies in 'Suan Sirikit', a park in Bangkok. The last weekend, bees are working as hard as always. I had a few shots and this one to share with you all.

Hi Jitti.
Very nice colorful close-up shot. I like your expressive POV and wonderful colors and great DOF. All details of the insects and heart of the flowers are well seen. Lighting pleasantly soft and effective. BG is very nice too. My compliments and TFS.

Bees don't have weekend holidays like us, JC :-)! I see how busy they are, working for their survival.
The two bees in different postures at the centre of this shapely flower make an eye-catching composition. The focus is very sharp and the colours are rich. I like the way you have cropped and presented the image.

Hello Jitti,

Hello Jitti,
verynice, yes it looks like they discovered a gold mine. Love the fresh summer colors. POV details and sharpness are very good. Maybe the crop is a bid to tight, I would love to seen the complete flower.
