Superb shots, Nathan.
Wonderful sequence of photos, Nathan. And, it seems that there are fewer bees. This is, or may become, a problem.

Four good closeup captures of this bee. I like V4 as my choice. Well done Nathan.

Considering your discomfort, you have a very good set here, Nathan.
I too, like the detail in V1, the dof is very shallow, giving some fine, furry detail, with a dreamy bokeh.

Great set Nathan,like them all super macro.

What a happy little furry darling making honey for my breakfast.
Such fantasic photography, at great pains too, take it easy old boy.
I too had heard the bees were low in numbers up your end of the world.
Do hope they will pick up if you have a good summer and flowering season…….WinkWinkWink
