Hi Tom, nice shot, looks like this bee is taking a nap using this flower as a bed..hehe..wonderful, have a nice day..

Hi Tom,
Gosh, I looked at that picture and it reminded me of when I was a kid, when I used to crawl in the dryer and have my brother turn it on while he was holding in the door pin safety button. Nice shot. :)

Hi Tom,
This is an excellent shot. Sharp, well framed, with good colors.

Hola Tom.
la primera vez que veo un abejorro como este.Yo creo que le falta un poco de nitidez.Un saludo.

great post, on my screen a little loss in detail in the blacks, but i am not sure if that is my screen. Nevertheless, this is a very interesting post and much appreciated. TFS
