Another honey bee doing the rounds on the Heleniums. I didn't cut off the wings this time and I've sharpened the image using Gert's suggestion - thanks Gert :)
For information on honey bees see my "Bee" image.

This is so great...The colors, sharpness and expression...Just super...I love it...TFS...Ina...

Fantastic. The colors on the thumbnail alone made me take a closer look. And, now the composition keeps me looking. Great macro of bee, pollen and flower. Stunning clarity and detail. Wonderful.

Excellent close-up. The details of the pollen on his legs and of the flower are amazing. Good position on the right allowing the other flower to be in the background.
Well done. Toni

Great composition, beautiful colours and very good POV.
It could be good to increase a bit the contrast.
Well done.

Hi Slr Novice, a very good macro, I like the face of the bee, it looks funny and she is so hungry, wonderful colors and good sharpening. TFS

Great macro - very sharp image.. The colours and composition are really impressive.

A belated welcome to TN, SLR? Its a lovely capture of this bee. Great close up details and vivid colors in the frame. Very well done.

Another Bee, Another Flower...and I would add: Another Great Macro shot from novice. And by the way, welcome to TN..."en retard".

Good Morning Mr Novice ;)

Great shot you have here. Very good details on the bee, very hairy creature, isnt he ? Love the pollen on the hind legs.

well done

This is really one of the best insectphoto's I've ever seen. The bright colours and the many details are incredible.
Thanks for sharing!


Wow! Fantastic colors and detail in this macro!!! Love it! I'll have to look back at Gert's sharpening suggestion. TFS, Jenn

Fantastic shot, loads and loads of detail in the legs and the flower. Very colourful as well, as you've not cropped too tightly.

Stunning colors, detail and clarity! This is one of the few shots that I would actually hang on my wall. The pollen dust, composition, everything, is just perfect!


Very good composition!!!
The colours are perfect.


Very beautiful macro, colours are sensational and the excellent definition. Good shot!

Très belle macro, les couleurs sont éclatantes et la définition excellente. Good shot!

What a wonderfull image Hollie, i like the great details & vivid colours, dof & pov are perfect.

Very well done!


Very well done macro. It's not easy that close and stay sharp. I did try myself in june but there is a soft focus in mine. Your colours are vivid and your compo is very well done. Perfect photo.

A Wonder,I adored the colors,but mainly the details of the bee,it with polén for its body,very pretty,congratulations.

Very nice composition but the grain and the overburnings spoil the effect a bit.A nice idea whatsoever. TFS!

Nice shot with excellent details and collors.
Great job.
