Honeybee at Work



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Earlier this spring I spotted this honey bee hard at work in one of our redbud trees. It gave me a good excuse to experiment with my macro lens.

Nice macro. And bees on flowers are always a good topic.

Macro can be so much fun! I looks like this bee has hit the jackpot. Love that color!!

Sandra said...

you did a great job on getting the bee in focus. I have tried and tried and mine are always slightly out of focus. i can't get the rebel to focus on just the bee. lovely shot

Great clarity and detail in this shot, and I can really appreciate it when enlarged. I love a good insect photo. They're amazing critters.
