We have Lift Off........

It had it's fill of pollen from the Cosmos and buzzed off to find another...
I had never noticed bees with orange bottoms before. Apparently they are quite common. Amazing what gets noticed when the macro lens comes out to play!
So true about the macro! I have never seen this! Beautiful! Fav

It's a wonderful shot Chantal. It's true about the macro but it's also to do with 365 itself. I must have walked around half blind before

awesome macro...wonderful and fav for me too ;o)

It is a wonderful shot and I tend to agree with Margaret. We may not even have noticed that there was a bee before

I like the way the wings are slightly blurred and the body is sharp - shows how hard the little guys work!

Beautiful. Lots of bee shots about but somehow you just lift them to another level. 365 fact learnt for the day- bees can have orange bottoms. Thank you

Love this! The composition and colours are gorgeous, I almost feel I want to stroke that little bee, he looks so cute!! I didn't know about bees having orange bottoms either! I have a new macro lens arriving today (bought with my birthday money) and JUST CAN'T WAIT to use it, I've wanted one for soooooo long!!
