[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the worker honey bees that visited my plum tree today.

I Experimented with burst mode to try and get these guys in action. I filled my 128Gb memory stick twice. I liked this picture because the sun was on the blossom and the blue sky in the back ground just added a nice warm fell to the shot.

If you look close you can see the bee's proboscis in the flower

The bees were extreemly hard to capture as they worked so fast.

I used Paint shop to crop, resize and frame.

This is good Sue. Well composed, the colours are excellent as is your sharpness. I love these spring flowers and you have got them so sharp. What a good job, thank you.

I very fine capture Sue with a lot of creative thinking behind it. A part from the few hot spots on the flowers the colours and sharpness are very nice. Composition is v good also. 7/10 well done.

Superb colors, excellent light and fantastic details. Great work!

Very nice picture I like it very much

Hi Sue,
I missed this wonderful photo, I were on holidays. It's wonderful with excellent sharpness and colours and I get jealous, you have spring-time, such a beautiful time in the year. In Germany the weather gets cold, all the wonderful flowers and insects are going to die. Your photo gives such a good and happy spirit to me, thanks.
