[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is a bumblebee sucking out of a lavender flower.
bumbles live on the nectar of flowers and take the pollen to feed their larva.so they contribute to the pollinisation.
every year many queens are born which are the only ones who survive the winter.at each spring they can give birth to 600 individuals who will be part of its colony.
the female bumble can sting,even more than one time.the male bumble who doesn't have any sting can't do it.
the bumble is a pacific insect:if you try to caress him while he is gathering,he will just try to push you back with his "feet".

great sharpness spot on and lovely compo.
Full action shot! A bit noisy at 400 Iso but not disturbing

hi caro,
strong colors,sunny light, a bit too much maybe.
and a nice BG.good timing.
the POV is less attractive - for me.
good work.

A very good macro of the face of a Bumble bee, Caroline.
Remarkable details, colours and composition.
Thanks for sharing the image and take care.
