Fantastic shot. I've tried the bumblebee on several occasions, but they are illusive. Or maybe I'm just afraid of being stung.

Rose said...

Nice capture! I have trouble catching one still enough to get a good picture.

Great macro, EG. That little bee is so precious.

Have a great day.
Hugs,

What an amazing photo! It is so clear and sharp that it seems as if we could reach out and touch that hairy bee.

Judy said...

My dad used to call bumblebees "drummeldrones".

Magnificent! I have gotten closeups of a bee but never a macro. Today, I was trying again and it was too elusive!

Reader Wil said...

Hi, as always a great macro photo. Bumblebees are much nicer than wasps. There are wasps near my frontdoor. I rang the exterminator to destroy them. Thanks for showing your photos! Have a nice day.

I can see every hair on his body! Neat shot!

That's a big bee. :-) If it wasn't for macros like this I wouldn't think they were this fuzzy.

This is an amazing macro, those little animal is so difficult to shot, they never stay in one place long enough!
