Good Morning, Folks!

A bumblebee enjoying a wonderful time while collecting "tons of nectar" from this attractive and juicy flower :) If I were a bee, I think I would do the same :D

But If I see this picture critically, the bumblebee is collecting lot of nectar and I really don't know whether the bee would be able to fly back to his home :))

Hope you enjoy the work...

Hi Paras,

This is a great macro of the bee, the details of its hair are well captured. Very nice crop/framing of the flower to focus emphasis on the bee.

Hi Paras,
Another fine macro of this pink flower with the busy visitor still digging the heart of this flower.
Another pleasant POV in excellent sharpness and neatness.
Good lighting casting eye-catching shades and shadows.
Great work, my friend!

Hi Paras,
Exactly what I thought when I saw the image. The bumblebee
is laden with a heavy load. The flower catching the sunlight
is a preety sight. A well shot macro with fine soft colours.
Best regards.

Bumblebee in action, I love it - and it is sitting very decorative on this pink Cosmea.
I miss summer and all the insects ...

Hello paras,

You have used excellent compositional skills in this fine shot! The bee and the flower are sharply focussed and their details of colour and texture are clearly defined. Perfect light control and dof.

How nice to be reminded of warmer, more colourful times!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
Sorry, Paras, I did not realise that I had used up all my smilies. My critique is still as sincere!

dear Paras,
this bumble bee looks so cheerful,
her striped tri-colored body is beautiful and very rich,
it is like a flying flag of the bee kingdom,
of course she is so busy, but her working place is like a museum of sun light, maybe happy circumstance,
very summer atmosphere is nice, thank you,

Hi Paras!

Extremely good focus and detail! Beautiful colors!

Very well done my friend!
