That's one bad-ass looking bee!
It has a lions mane!

(I'm not too happy with the bee population at this point in time.
I got stung on the lip last night while biking.
Hurt like hell! The little bugger!)

Interesting shot. Especially with the shallow DOF.

I hope that your lip is feeling better Jeff! I don't dare tell my girlfriend that I got the pic yet, since she just got stung this morning while I was talking to her on the phone.



Thanks tiffpix,
In all honesty I used the highest f-stop that I could and still hand hold the camera without changing ISO.
I shot it through a Vivitar 28mm f2.8 lens (at f5.6) on a Vivitar 2x Macro Teleconverter, which has a built in extension tube turning the average 50mm lens into a true 1 to 1 macro. I could have gotten a fair amount closer if I had wanted to, but didn't want to spook the fellow any more.

It's low res, plus sorry about the watermark, but here's a link to a larger version. BEE
