This is a very nice macro of the bee Hernan. The colour and detail is great. The pollen sticking to the bee of course adds to this shot.

Thanks, John

Hello Hernan,
Very nice macro.I liked vivid colors,POV,details,DOF and composition a lot.

salut hernan
vous avez la une belle macro,j'adore le fait que les grains de pollen recouvrent presque entierement l'insecte.

So nota por las especies que Ricardo Y tu sois compatriotas :)
Vaya borrachera de polen que tiene nuestra amiga.
Y eres todo un experto con esta configuración, y cada una de las pocas veces que me dejo caer por TN ultimamente me sorprendes con más calidad!
Relación equipo-calidad de las mejores de TN, felicidades.
