Took a few shoot before I got one where he was still enough. Just caught my interest so decided to try.

Just look at those pollen baskets - they're bursting! I like it, but would tighten up the crop a bit to showcase the bee more effectively. It's a she, btw - pretty much every ant and bee you see is a female because the only ones that routinely leave the nest are workers and those are all female.

We could learn a lot from ants and bees ;)

I quite like this. Nice warm colours.

You think so? One male in the colony gets to have sex, then he dies. The rest, who were unsuccessful, are killed.

I didn't say we should follow ALL their leads! ;)

I quite like this shot as well - lovely colour. You may want to try a crop on the left side, just beyond the black area at lower left, that might make this image even stronger.

That's a wonderfully sharp image of a fine looking bee. I like Marko's crop suggestion as dropping the dark spot will remove it from being a bit of a distraction.

I like the new look better.

Very cool! Much nicer. Total focus on that wonderful bee. :)
