Preening Bee

By bunbeam
This bee was preening itself on a leaf. looks like he`s poking his tongue out at me in V1.. I had to lean over the fence and move a twig out of the way for these one handed macro shots..
Thanks for all the wonderful comments and all the clicks on yesterdays butterfly.. very much appreciated xxxxxx
I`m still having to click and run, I`ve been tidying the place up, even cleaned the cooker ready for parents arrival tomorrow, it took all day cos I was interupted by my addiction to bug hunting with my camera..

Great set of macro images. If you scroll across the versions very quickly with the mouse its like a moving picture.

Paul's been playing with the flicker show, like me, making the bee move by going across the versions. Great shots, Bun, lovely hairy detail and a nice shadow too.

Three great shots Bun, fantastic detail. There's a strange change of white balance between 2 and 3 though, 3 seems to be a bit too yellow.

All three worth the click though.
