Very good macro shot. But the main interest here is the outstanding note you wrote about this parasite. Thank you very much for the pic and the information Felipe.
Cruel world, one eats another... Great, interesting note Felipe. Sad shot but of course it is nature.
Anyway I prefer photos of bumblebees without those little Mites.

An excellent post, Felipe.
I looked this picture than the scaled image.
I read the note and went to the refered site.
I saw and learned things I did not know before. I am less ignorant than before I checked your post. Even if you do not want it, you change my life!
Thanks a lot!
Now I will read the others members' critiques.

look a lot like ticks, just smaller, than the one's nearly always present on wild animals. I like this picture, especially for portrayong MORE than just the BB.
As for patience - I am very impatien by nature, and NOT a morning person at all. However, when it comes to photography, I can get uP @ 03h30 to get to a site and wait hours, often wih the sweat running in rivulets down my back, just to maybe "catch" the moment. I really try to "catch the moment" the challenge is the thing, and then sometimes, a small success.
But shooting fungi and strange things is also nice.

What a very nice closeup from that BumbleBee. Interesting INFO you wrote about this parasite. I think it's a worldwide problem. POV, BG and DOF are perfect. Colours are very naturel. Regards and TFS Bob
