Now that is what you call a macro shot.
Well done, it is very hard to catch this subject with such clarity. You have done a wonderful job.
One thing I might change is make the outer border thinner.

Very good detail and depth of field in this close-up shot. You must have been quick to get this before it flew off or, as often happens to me, it turned its back on you.

Not a bee Margaret - I think its a Drone Fly (Eristalis Tenax) "named for its resemblance to the Honey Bee". A way of spotting the difference is that a bee has smaller, more oval eyes and long antenna. (Their tongues are very different too, but you need to get up close and personal to spot that Smile

Its a nice shot and your focus is spot on the face - good stuff

Gosh it was windy this afternoon as well, the buddleia kept disappearing from view !
Thank you Ken, Brian, Tony and Brian, I thought it was a honey bee but I didn't even hear a buzz as I was indoors at the time ;o)
Thanks for the id Brian, very helpful.

Margaret.

P.S. Forgot to say that this has only been slightly cropped, resized and slight sharpening applied.

Thank you Eric, Jim and Fran, this buddleia flower is resting against a window so I took the shot from indoors with the lens pressed almost against the glass ;o) Thank you for visiting.

I wondered how you got the angle (which I like) but you just explained.

Wonderful macro and another feather in the cap of your window cleaner!! Wink)
