OH my, what a shot! The colors are so vibrant and it's amazing how fuzzy looking the bee is.

WOW!! That is so cool. It is such a clear picture - looks like it could come buzzing right off the screen. :-)

Hallo Dick
Prachtig en eng tegelijk!
De close ups zijn altijd prachtig, met macro gemaakt?

Mijn macro-lenzen (en camera's) liggen tno in de kast vanwege m'n arm, Mbt je opm. Naarden views: Vraag aan je broer eens om een "wandeling rond de vesting-wallen", dan zie je dit soort 'plaatjes' als gezien op mijn blog...

goed weekend, dank v je reaktie,

Great capture and so colorful

Dina said...

Usually bees are my enemy but you made this one seem fuzzy-wuzzy and even "sympati." Great shot.

Hi Dick!
Wow! What an amazing picture... ;)
Also loved the seaguls on a row!
Thanks for your comments on Blogtrotter, now at the Michigan Law School! Left a reply to your last comment there!
Hope you take pleasure in it and wish you a great week!

amazing, amazing photo, one of your best ever. I love the swirls of color. It took me awhile to realize exactly what it was, but to me that makes it even better. I especially like the way you've kept the bee sharp and permitted just enough bluriness in the flowers to make them swirl together. What camera were you using, and, if appropriate, what lens?

Diane said...

Wow, what a great capture! I wish I had a macro lens that could take this sort of shot. Thanks again for visiting Dick.

You are approaching the Kostas class when it comes to bees. Impressed.

Oh David, this is amazing, may be one day I can get something like that. How did you manage to get that close, lol. I am little paranoid, plus I am not that fast, lol. Anna :)
