A wild native bee, known here as melipona, is inside a convulvulus flower. Its a very difficult to take picture about this species, they´re very "nervous" and fast, but here was really easy, it was busy eating nectar.
Taken with homemade macro in my garden

Hola Hernan

what a beautiful capture...
the details on the bee eyes are very good, and you caught it in a particular moment...
nice diffuse colors..


Nice one! How did you capture this one? Looks like an unusual purple glow, did you use the flash? Cheers Josh Lewis.

Hello Hernan,
Wonder how you did this picture. Seem that you took this bee front view from inside the flower. TFS this nice picture.

Hello Hernan,

Nice close-up of this bee. Very nice detail. Amazing colours and light which create a surreal atmosphere.
Well done,

Hola Hernan.
Una muy bella foto. Artistica diria Yo. Hermosos colores de los petalos de la flor. Por la dificultad de la toma. Es una Joya.
Saludos Hernan.

Hi Hernan.
What a creative idea and fine its realization. I am impressed with colouration of the image, interesting lighting and ration of sharpness and blurriness. So interesting work. My compliments.

Hi Hernan, superb original macro of splendid bee, fantastic colors and wonderful light, very well done, ciao Silvio
