"Help - I can't see any more - too many pollen on my eyes!"
This funny hoverfly was enjoying the sweet pollen of the peony in my garden. She was always cleaning herself, you can see it how she uses her legs in this moment. It was so nice to watch her, I hope you also like my little friend - the Pollinator ...

Have a sunny weekend everybody.

Hello Sabine,
Excellent macro shot. Great detail and so close! Amazing colours, the pink and yellow of the BG are really intense (in the good sense). Perfect exposure and nice light and shadow in the BG. Great shot.

C'est formidable d'avoir obtenu un si bonne netteté avec tant de détails.

great details

Cette macro est superbe, les couleurs sont éclatantes et la netteté est bonne. L'abeille recouverte de pollen est amusante ;-)
Well seen and well done. Bravo Sabine and have sunny weekend too.

This shot is so wonderful, the fly with all the pollen, such a clear sharp photo with such great color and light, excellent, very summery and bright mood, a "happy" photo, it makes me smile to look at it.
