[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, and are known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. Bees are a monophyletic lineage within the superfamily Apoidea, presently classified by the unranked taxon name Anthophila. There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees in seven to nine recognized families, though many are undescribed and the actual number is probably higher. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants. (From Wikipedia)

Hi Eleu,
A beautiful Nature shot with this bee in flight reaching such a lovely orange flower adorned with perfect light. Good choice of shallow focusing rendering such a lovely bokeh BG.
Well done for this neat work.

Hi Eleu.

I like the frozen action of this bee checking out the larder. The back lighting makes for a very attractive scene. Excellent sharpness of detail too, we can see the spiders threads clearly.

stv ;o))

Bonjour Eleu

Hello Eleu, a very sharp shot!Even the fine fibres of a spider's web can be seen on some of the petals.
I love the hovering bee, with its wings just a blur.
The back lighting works really well.
Tfs, regards Jean.

An eye-catcher for sure, the bokeh is simply lovely, Eleu!
