[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Spotted this bee (I don't think it's a hoverfly) drinking from a daisy in the garden of the cottage we were staying in while we holidayed in Devon.

Sorry about the blown petals, but the light was very strong, and I'm not sure how to correct it.

Sharpened and resized.

ISO 200

The bee is very decent; sharp, good colors and well exposed. The flower is overexposed and a bit distractive because of that. TFS!
