Taken early evening. Not sure what this flowering shrub is with these white flowers and it has thorns, but the bees were all over it. C&C welcome.

Canon 20D,100mm macro lens @ Aperture priority @ f/22 and 1/15 sec. Manfrotto monopod and cable release.

Thanks for looking.

You're steady at 1/15th, even with the help of a monopod. Very enjoyable shot, and I like the subtlety of colors in the flower centers as well as the insect detail.

To FLY or not to FLY....................much discussion amongst friends say I took a shot of a "fly"....wonder where my bee photo this is a bee, then it's a wierd one I tell me.

JDar, thanks for the comment........I am still trying to figure out the macro lens and am getting there.

Maybe it's a fly with delusions of 'bee-ing'. Sorry.:roll:

Nice pic, by the way.:cool:
