My first challenge topic suggestion that was picked and I almost didn't have a submission. I wasn't able to pull together my original idea and ended up shooting this the last day of the challenge.

I really want to catch a bee in flight and tried for about an hour to no avail. This guy settled into a nice location and chilled out for a bit and I really like how the light fell on him.

I look top be on pace to be a new PB. Thank you for the all the comments and I am glad you liked the image.

Lovely - a bee with attitude and the stamens almost reflect the bee in shape and color. In my top 5

Beautiful photography! Absolutely exquisite. I gave it a 10. (only because they don't allow you to give it an 11)

Nice, although doesn't seem realistic. Why is the insect on a green surface, but looking at yellow?
