Nice shots all. Shooting in a breeze can be a challenge. About those bees; how can you tell they are young bees?

i was just assuming () because the usual ones i see around are much bigger. these are probably/possibly a different kind. they make me nervous, afraid of getting stung, but the more i practice shooting, i am getting easier around them.

thanks all for the positive feedback. any and all is much appreciated.

love these shots mary. as you know bees are my bag at the moment too, so seeing bees across the pond and slightly different to ours, is very interesting. number 3 is a great shot! remember, a bee's first sting is his last, and they are very reluctant to sting even when you are close. by the way, the young bees are normally in bed earlier and the older ones have facial hair

Nice job, Mary. I also like 3 and 4. #2 looks a bit like a leaf-cutter bee.....

I like the last bee shot and I hate spiders.
