Hi Friends.

Today afternoon we (me, my sons and a friend of me) went to Uludag, a mountain near Bursa, 2543 m. high. Our target was taken lots of photos. Really we done it. It was a fantastic trek. I'm going to share them day by day.

This little bee (perhaps a wild honey bee) was very shy and has perched on a plant that it was a member of Umbelliferae. The bee was very busy with its job and it didn't perceive me. But I could not menage to give me a pose. It has turned always its back. But I want to see its eyes and head. But it was impossible.

The place that I took this shot, near the highest hill of Uludag, about 2500 m. Also the highest hill of Uludag is 2543 m. Perhaps it was a domestic honey bee, but I don't think. There was not a centre of popolation nearby the hill.

Anyway I don't know the insects, perhaps someone can help me for ID. But I know this plant. It is a member of Umbellifereae and has a specific pungent nice smell like spices. Its name is: Heracleum humile.

H. humile is a endemic plant in flora of Uludag. Because of this, this sharing a bit important for harbalists and botany lovers. Because they can never see this plant anywhere except Uludag.

También es un buen punto de vista aunque la abeja no quiso colaborar... buen encuadre y nota explicativa de la extraña planta y no conozco abejas de esta forma. Siempre se aprende algo cada día. un saludo desde las islas Canarias.

Merhaba Fevzi Bey.
Olağan üstü bir çalışma, tebrik ederim. Keşke arıcık bu kadar utangaç olmasaymış da yüzünü gösterseymiş. Ama bence sizi fark etmiş ve sürekli iğnesini göstererek gardını almış :).
BG, POV, Colours, all details are perfect. TFS

Hi Fevzi,
Superb close up shot of this bumble bee. Sharp and clear, with nice details. Nicely composed and great blurry BG. Have a nice weekend and don't work too hard...

Hello Fvzi,
this is a very nice close up. The main subjects stand out very well from the OOF back ground. Good sharpness and nice POV.
Well done.
