V3 made me smile! The view I always seem to get when attempting to capture a Bumble Bee image. Do you think they are telling us something? Lovely set, not least the two co-operative smilers!

The tracery on their wings is beautifully captured, Carol.
V3 qualifies as something different! An unusual view.

Good wing vein detail in these

Wet and miserable this morning, though it may clear later and begin to warm up a tad
