Just a few bees buzzing around my garden today..
All one handed macro shots..
v6.. I had my hand on the fence taking bee shots and felt something on my hand, I braved a couple of shots before shaking it off and shuddering..
Thanks for all the brilliant comments and all the clicks on my moth shots, very much appreciated xxxxxx

Your bee shots are amazing, you seem to catch them so well. I find them very difficult to capture! As for the Harvestman, they are a bit creepy, but I can cope with them - they aren't true spiders!

Lovely combed little bees you found in your garden. Very nice looking... Great close ups again,
Johanna



V6: Harvestmen are eight-legged but are not counted as spiders.
Harvestmen do not have silk glands and do not possess venom glands, posing absolutely no danger to humans.
Many species can detach their legs, which keep on moving to confuse predators, hence your six legged specimen.
