Honey Bee (Fly Me To Mars)

Busy Bee on a flower

A bee working away in my back garden. I zoomed into 250mm to try not to disturbe the bee (or get stung). It was hard to get a shot with a good position but here you can literally see him collecting the nectar. The bee collects nectar, while pollen collects on its body

    Great shot, but you’re unlikely to get stung. I think it’s a hoverfly. http://www.cirrusimage.com/flies_Metasyrphus_americanus.htm.

      Thanks. I’ll have to try to think of a new title so…
