Taken at Broughton Castle (Banbury) over the weekend.
I was wandering around the garden regretting taking my entire kit bag with me when I saw this little fella and did a quick switch to the macro lens.
This was shot handheld at ISO 400 to allow for f8 and a fast enough shutter speed.
Best viewed LARGE.

Beautiful composition, colours and photo.
I like the way the colours of the bee match those of the flower centre, and all contrast nicely with the white petals. Good shot.
Wow this is amazing detail and great composition. Frame sets it off well too.
Brilliant macro shot, plenty of detail, well presented.
Nice close up

Aww soo cute hehe. Love the colours and you have captured incredible detail, love the pollen on the bees legs! You
got even closer then I managed too and I got stung Really like!
Thanks for all the comments.
They were fairly docile yesterday which helped, but the advantage of the 180mm Macro is that I could stay a reasonable distance out just in case!
I unfortunately stepped on a bee the previous day in my bare feet (more unfortunate for the bee than me) so the throbbing in my foot was a gentle reminder to respect his air space.
Excellent Bee shot. Pin sharp good detail and colour. Denise x
