Great timing Jason, and lovely colour and detail. Like the catchlight in the eye, and the wing movement. Lovely work.

Absolutley fantastic shot. The bee is perfectly sharp and the blue of the flower sets it aside from the usual all green shots.

You're right about the catch light. It also gave the wings a great accent light to bring out some detail.
Lovely shot, Jason!

Surprised at the low shutter speed on this Jason, I've been trying to do something similar using a light tent and just can't seem to freeze the wings at anything less than 1/500sec. Probably the bee getting angry with me for putting him in the tent, either that or you just have a slow flyer.
Don't get me wrong BTW this isn't a criticism, anything but!.....The shot itself is superb and I wouldn't dare question your ability, all I can say on this one is well done, because to get bees in flight this sharp takes a whole load of skill....
