hi Al,
Great capture in flight and sharp details for this bee. It could have been perfect if not for the dark background. Well done kabayan. Cheers.

Another stunningly sharp and crisp macro of an insect that looks like a Bumble Bee to me, AC.
The focus on the entire subject is needle sharp. The details are exquisite and the colours very natural. The neutral dark BG enhances the image of the Bee manifold.
Well done and TFS.
