Thank you all!!
I spent about 2hrs in 107 temperature shooting Bees that afternoon. I had a Rotolight Aeos to light the scene, just over my left shoulder. I must have shot around 800 images. I had several decent shots of Bees in flight, but this was the only sharp one with great placement of the flying Bee.

This is a phenomenal nature image! Bees are hard enough to capture on a flower let alone in a row and one in flight! Very impressive, Congrats!

Hard enough to get one bee in focus but you managed to get them all! Well done.

Fantastic capture - congrats! I have attempted to capture flying insects many times with no success so I know how difficult a capture this is. And with reflections too.
