I found this bumble bee suffering from the cold. I helped her up on to a leaf in the sun and she thanked me by posing for some photos.

I like this one as she re-appeared over the side of the leaf.

Maybe some more tomorrow (if there aren't too many complaints Smile

Maybe because they can "prate geen Nederlandse" Femke, (mind you, neither can I these days - I suspect I've spelt it wrong? Smile

What sound does a Dutch bee make?

Bernie, I think there was actually a group in the late '60s called "Bee Bumble and The Stingers". I'm trying to remember if it was on one of the programmes my kids used to watch or whether it was a real group.

(You know what they say about the '60s, if you can remember them you weren't there!)

Thanks Sally - the key is to get to know your model first (and stroke their fluffy bums - if you feel brave). I'm sure they appreciate the attention Smile

It does help if it is cold, they are very sluggish and so give you more time with each shot.

Linda isn't the only one who has come back to this image for another look, I have several times and it just gets better.

You should be thinking about a competition to enter it into!

Hi Lucie - I wasn't sure if others would see it the same way as I did. I half expected a "Oh no - another bug shot" response, but I have been delighted with the positive reaction - thanks again to all.


Lesley Jane, thanks - I'm cogitating - always a slow process these days Smile

brian, you can have an awarb no problem, i thought there was a good chance of an EC tho, and u already hav an RSPCI insect award. i tend not to give awards to photos that already have such a great response as that is award enough is it not? ;o) i try to give them to the ones i personally think should have more clicks/comments. (plus ive just had a look in the warb award warbdrobe, and i seem to be running low)

aww but just look at mr b's face, ok ok.

*congratulations, this photo has received a warb award.

Cheers Warb, an "awarb" has extraordinary value, even more rare than the EC, so many thanks - (you are as daft as I am - compliment!).

Pete doesn't appear to share the view of many - I had wondered, but maybe he did see it as "just another bug shot?"
