God bless the bees. They are rapidly disappearing.

Look at how small those wings are compared to the bee's body. It is truly remarkable that they can fly.

I'm on the fence about if I like the dark, shadowy bokeh, but I am definitely in awe of your amazing, perfectly focused, and highly detailed photography of the bee and flower.

The focus is flawlessly clear, yet there is an alluring softness to the subject. A testament to your skill.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Thank you all for the nice comments. The picture was taken some time ago, and sat in a to-do folder far too long. I'm not sure why the background is just a blur, normally I'm pretty conscious of what's in the frame. But to get these pictures, I have to do lots of snap shots, with only a few seconds available. Bees won't hang around for anything, they're on a mission and don't waste a second.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Beautiful close-up -- you can almost feel the fur on that bee, and the blossom shines out. You may have been firing off the shots, but it came out very clearly.
