The Honey Maker

By moiral
Morning all. I find bees quite fascinating little creatures, with their lovely little hairy bodies and gorgeous wings. In fact the detail on their wings fascinates me so much, I have added a V2 of a close up of a wing - a big crop here so haven't managed to remove all the noise. These shots taken last week - you would know that by the sunshine!!!! Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

Two wonderful macro shots Moira, the colour is great in both images. My vote goes to V2 as it could almost be a stained glass window.

I so agree with your fascination for bees Moira - I am the same - I watch them for hours when I get the chance - I even started to stroke them a few years back as they fed on echinacea or some such flower - they seem to like it. Though I did get stung last year for the first time in my life and boy, didn't it hurt! For days and days and my hand swelled up like a football. But, hey ho.

Lovely images, the detail of the wing in V2 is lovely.
