I was pretty pleased with myself for capturing this shot of a bee in action!
His little bottom was quivering with delight. And when he finally came up for air, he looked around drunkenly before stumbling onto the next flower.

  9. That's a great close-up shot of a bee! So far I haven't been successful in capturing a good close-up of a bee. They just won't sit still long enough for me. :)

  16. WOW! This is a gorgeous shot and I'm so glad you shared it. I haven't seen a bee up that close...it almost looks cute and fuzzy (you have to excuse me, I'm extraordinarily frightened of them!). Just wonderful. :D Here's my simple shot for today: http://zaraalexis.wordpress.com/2012/09/08/saturday-snapshot-09-08-2012/

  17. That's a great capture! Reminds me of one I managed on a trip to the Boundary Waters with my son and his Scout Troop. I didn't even know I had a bee in it until I looked at the photos later.

    Here's my Saturday Snapshot.

  19. What a wonderful photo. Those little guys are so interesting to watch. My camera is MIA this weekend, so I am only browsing or should I say" lurking" at everyone else's.
