This bee was collecting nectar when it got its proboscis stuck in the flower and was madly dancing around trying to get free. Hence i have 30 or 40 blurred images and only this one and a couple others came out anything near sharp. The flower here is a White Calla Lily and the petal has become the background.

The shot was hand held using a 24-105 L Series lens with an EF-12 Extension Tube to reduce the focussing distance. cropped and enhanced in Photoshop CS5

Thanks in advance for looking at my image.
