The macro lens obviously reveals details that the naked eye cannot see, and what details. Those hairy legs and those amazing eyes.
For a second, I thought your "Not Happy" meant you weren't happy with the imageSad, but that can't be the case, it's the bee. Maybe it is disappointed that those muscari bells are not open yet.

Thanks for the link Barney - I had read something of the decline somewhere too.

I have a feeling this one in the photo was not in good health - it's a great shame.

I read that some bees are just dropping and dying. Worrying. This is a really WOW image, and so poignant given their circumstances at the moment.

Yes it's very nippy this morning - no sign of any bees yet. Thanks for your UA Karen.

Stunning shot Brian with first rate DOF. Not only sharp as a new pin on the bee but equally sharp on the flower. First class.

That is some lens and you wield it VERY well, Brian. Mindboggling macro image.

Just read the article in the link Barney sent. So very sad. And worrying. Considering how important bees are.

An awesome close up Brian, the detail and clarity is incredible. I didn't think you'd be able to beat the previous days effort but this is a marvellous follow up to it
