Hello Friends.
When we went to Hatila National Park, it was a sunny and hot day, even we are in November. Bees are hard-workers. And this wildy bee has begun to work very hard in sunlight. This little daisy (Bellis perennis Fam: Asteracea) grows around of Turkey where is mild mediterannean climate. You can find some info about Bellis perennis HERE But I don't know anything about bee. (I guess it was a bee, perhaps I was wrong).

I used my KENKO 2X Teleconverter with Minolta AF 50 mm lens. But I think if you work about macro, you should carry a tripod. It is too difficult to take a sharp photo even super steady system of SONY, if you choose a tele-lens or a lens with tele-converter.

Greetings and thanks for all.
Thanks to Wishnugaruda for ID-Help.

Beautiful arrangement, Fevzi, I love the sunny colours so much. It's a hoverfly - but the body looks like a bee - but the eyes are much bigger. They are also very busy - collecting the last pollen in this year.
We now have snow, brrrrr and it's soooo cold.
Now it's the time watching birds.
Bye bye and many kind greetings to you my friend

Merhaba Fivzi,
Nice close-up of this hoverfly. Search for this word in TN and you will find some pages of different species. Beautiful compostion, very details and lovely colors.

Donna :o)

Thanks for your comments on my photo " December Storm -6" :o)

Merhaba Fevzi,
Hoverfly or bee? Yes, the eyes are big, but usually hoverfly has no hairs on body and legs. Well, I am not sure about the ID [but I am not an entomologist]
There are some soft spots, but in general this is a nice shot.

Hi Fevzi.
Really perfect macro with excellent presentation. I like how you have composed the shot, its amazing colour palette and outstanding BG, perfect sharpness, details and reproduction of the flower and hoverfly. BRAVO, my dear friend.

Çiçekteki ve böcekteki netlik şahane, çok güzel bir sonuç elde etmişsiniz. Renkler ve kompozisyon da dört dörtlük olmuş, elinize sağlık.

Beautiful macro! Great detail, very close and great composition!
