Now that is what you call a macro shot.
Well done, it is very hard to catch this subject with such clarity. You have done a wonderful job.
One thing I might change is make the outer border thinner.

Very good detail and depth of field in this close-up shot. You must have been quick to get this before it flew off or, as often happens to me, it turned its back on you.

Not a bee Margaret - I think its a Drone Fly (Eristalis Tenax) "named for its resemblance to the Honey Bee". A way of spotting the difference is that a bee has smaller, more oval eyes and long antenna. (Their tongues are very different too, but you need to get up close and personal to spot that Smile

Its a nice shot and your focus is spot on the face - good stuff

Gosh it was windy this afternoon as well, the buddleia kept disappearing from view !
Thank you Ken, Brian, Tony and Brian, I thought it was a honey bee but I didn't even hear a buzz as I was indoors at the time ;o)
Thanks for the id Brian, very helpful.


P.S. Forgot to say that this has only been slightly cropped, resized and slight sharpening applied.

Very great know today I attempted to take a picture of a bee, and well they are fast little buggers.... Smile I think I will just look at the shots of bees on line.

Wow! You can see every tiniest hair on its body! Wonderful macro work.

(Personally macro scares me witless - I've never done it)

Thank you Eric, Jim and Fran, this buddleia flower is resting against a window so I took the shot from indoors with the lens pressed almost against the glass ;o) Thank you for visiting.

I wondered how you got the angle (which I like) but you just explained.

Wonderful macro and another feather in the cap of your window cleaner!! Wink)
