Spotted in the local garden centre - so I only had my compact on me! Couldn't resist trying to capture it though, Bumble Bees are so pretty.

Fine evidence of why one should never go out without a camera to hand.

Hi Karen,

Nice capture, they do make good images with the pallen all over them.

Karen i'm not sure if you use "elements/PS etc" but if you do you can make this bee stand out a touch more.

I've posted a mod with just a couple of slight adjustments, see what you think.

Take care
Martin

Tricky little customers at the best of times Karen, love how you've captured the pollen dust on this speciman.

A super close up Karen, it certainly pays to carry a compact camera around wherever you go
