Bee by helstor


The spring in Norway has been so cold that bee keepers have to buy large quantities of brown sugar to feed their bees so they don't starve to death. We have started seeing some flowers and insects the last couple of days so hopefully it will get better from now on.

I suck at bug shots, but I kind of liked this one ;-)
Wow! what an enormous bumblebee - he almost eclipses the flower. Very well obseved and captured.

Yes he is huge! (If this is a dandelion?) he's not gone hungry :)

Lovely detail all over the bee's body and legs even down to the tiny 'claws' at the end of his legs. Super capture.

Beautifully positioned. She looks almost as if she's wearing a large apron. Excellent shot, Helge.

What a gigantic bee! Looks like it's sucking the very life out of that poor flower! Fave! :)

He is so big, relative to the flower. At least the perspective makes it look so. Great image.
