July 4th - Bee macro

Today's picture is a macro. :) When the bees were buzzing around on these flowers, they sounded happy. Once they started buzzing loud and freaked me out! But, I didn't get stung. I've never been stung by a bee! Can you believe it?

Wow, that's a lovely closeup shot. And those bees are pretty busy, so it's tricky to find them when they are still enough to macro! Well done.

Wow, you managed to shoot a bee! And it looks just fine. I never ever managed to get one on purpose. Maybe I'm to impatient :D

This is a really terrific shot. It makes my heart race pretty bad. I am absolutely petrified of bees...I have never been stung either.

That is what a macro should look like! Really brilliant shot :)
