what a fantastic capture of this little bee in-flight, outstanding sharpness with fine details, marvellous and brilliant colours, great timing and excellent POV in a very pleasing composition.
I am glad I saw this posting just as it appeared on the gallery. This is a super macro, with great details on the "motion" part of the bee in the air. It is just so well photographed that one cannot see the "motion" part taking place, except for two very fine white lines just above the bee’s wings. The clarity of the eyes the striped body and the hairiness on the chest is really great and such a pleasure to look at. I applause you for this great image. Great camerawork applied.
Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Seems like you have a cute buzzing neighbour. :)
Amazing capture of this Honey bee carrying pollen . Perfectly focused and sharp subject. The motion of the wings gives an impression of it hovering in the frame. Excellent POV, DOF and well saturated colours.
Thanks for sharing thislovely shot,

What a wonderful capture of a Bee in flight, Alexei!
Framed by green leaves, the subject is frozen into amazing sharpness and vivid colours.
There is something very cheerful about this picture.
Your note is quite humorous.
Thanks and don't keep that busy, my friend. We miss your great work.

It's so nice that you were able to take time off from your work to post this magnificent action shot of the bee. You froze him in space absolutely perfectly. Colors and clarity are superb. The setting is beautiful and there is a marvelous 3D effect. Looks like the bee will fly right off the monitor.

Fantastic post as always from You MF. You chose aperture and shutter speed the best way - the bee's sharp like a razorblade, and is in just the perfect place on the photo. :) Fabolous capture, but I should have cropped a little more from the oof red flower at the bottom. Otherwise a top notch image. Bravo.
Friendly regards, Vladyslav

uno scatto fantastico sia per colori e dettagli sia per l'attimo che sei riuscito a catturare congelando la piccola ape in volo. Eccezionale gestione della luce e della messa a fuoco che rendono il tutto al meglio.
