This is a Bee, not a Honey bee, but the size of a Honey bee.I am not sure. It has a Black abdomen without yellow stripes.

Hello Nikos,
European hoverfly or Eristalis tenax, great macro with excellent details, sharpness and composition.
Regards Siggi

hello Nikos
you have taken this bee with sharp focusing. the colors are amazing as well as the composition. I like especielly his transparent wings TFS

Hallo Nikos
What a delightful and sunny view. The details of both the flower and the hoverfly are just stunning and I cannot say one is better than the other. What a great shot. The combination of colours is a lovely match and creates a most joyful feeling. I like the way you fit the flower in the frame, making the fine details more closely to observe and appreciate. I also like the way you have blurred out some of the flowers in the background but still leaving enough to know what the blurred subject is. The visibility and clarity of the bee is super and it looks as if it was polished before the photograph. You have captured the shine on the wings with great preciseness and it displays great. I like the shiny effect. I enjoyed looking at this one.
Kind regards
