I never realized some bees had such hairy legs Smile This fella had come into my lounge, hoping for a photo shoot, so I encouraged him onto a freesia bud and took a few shots, before being released into the world.

Update: V.4 upload for Moira Smile

Some waxing is definitely required.. Grin

3 lovely shots Carol, your fame is definitely spreading if the subjects are coming to you rather than t'other way round. Grin

It has apparently never heard of No No or some waxing products, Carol: amazingly hairy legs indeed, and so well captured by you in this trio.

Very well taken - but V1 wins for the angle of the leg, the way the bee occupies the flower. I'd go for a tighter crop - lose about half the non-bee space at the bottom and on the left. It would make more of the quirky 'upside down L-shape'.
