Bumble Bee (5)

Bumble bee (bumblebee) that was flying around during our walk yesterday. It was going from flower to flower and wasn't bothered by our camera lenses poking around near it. It just went about it's business.

Quite cute little (big!) things. I probably wouldn't touch one though ;)

Photoshop: Crop (was too scared to use supermacro on this one), sharpening and some very soft blurring of the background to remove some noise.

Altered Image #1
