|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Caught this one yesterday, in a little sunshine in the late afternoon, whilst playing with the (relatively) new camera. This time I had it in AI Servo mode (If anyone can explain the 3 modes to me... ) on a tripod. The one thing I did notice was that the flowers I thought would be 'good' were not the ones that the bees were interested it.|
I beleive that it is a Honey Bee (Apis mellifera), but I'm probably wrong with that ID. I'm not 100% sure what the flower is either, but it came from one of those wildflower/rich nectar seed packs and had the most amazing colours when it flowers at this time of year (and for about the next 2/3 weeks) and attracts huge numbers of bees and flies of all sorts, but I have yet to see any butterflies on it.
I have cropped and resized the photo, sharpened it and added a border. Everything else is as is. The picture was taken using a tripod, using the digital lens.
What else - well if you like it, there are 2 or 3 more of this series with a couple of other bees rummaging around what I considered to be old, almost dead, flowers.

Nice shot. Can't believe this didn't get more points.
I like this very much, a very special shot with that flying bee, not easy to make, congratulations. The colours and the flower are marvelous, I like this autumn-flowers and -colours, thanks.
