[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a test with an old lens, Nikkor 60mm/2,8 micro without autofocous and all that benefits of D70.
The bumblebee is a flying insect of the genus Bombus in the family Apidae. Like the common honeybee, of which it is a relative, the bumblebee feeds on nectar and gathers pollen to feed its young. These creatures are beneficial to humans and the plant world alike, and tend to be larger than other members of the bee family. Most, but not all, bumblebee species are gentle. From this comes their original name: "Humblebee".
Thank you to stay.

Yasu Ioannis!
Very nice capture.I liked POV,framing,lighting and composition a lot.I'm not expert but I think ID is not correct its yellow-jacket not bumblebee;).Very well done!TFS...:-)

Nice portrait. But I agree with dew77, not a bumble bee : it is a wasp, a male Polistes sp., family vespidae. And THEY sting, if provoked, believe me !

Belle capture. Merci de l'échange.

Nice shot Ioannis. Well composed with sharp details seen in the head of your wasp. Thank You.

Γειά σου Γιάννη

Καθόλου άσχημη η εστίαση και οι λεπτομέρειες θα έλεγα. Βέβαια η αυτόματη εστίαση δεν παίζεται, ωστόσο πολλή καλή δουλειά.

Yassas Ioannis!
