Good day to you all at ePz

Thank you all so very much for all your wonderful comments, messages and votes following my recent upload 'Blue Tide"

Todays images were captured whilst prowling around the garden with some discomfort. I have not seen many Bees this year so capturing one was somewhat of a delight.

I hope that you enjoy this little series.

Have a great day whatever you get up to.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Wonderful sequence of photos, Nathan. And, it seems that there are fewer bees. This is, or may become, a problem.

Considering your discomfort, you have a very good set here, Nathan.
I too, like the detail in V1, the dof is very shallow, giving some fine, furry detail, with a dreamy bokeh.
