Thanks JJ! Got to admit, it was a little nerve-wracking holding the camera up to it, with the tree alive with all types of bees! You could hear the buzzing quite a ways away.

It is a great shot Carol, only thing I might suggest is lookout for those hot spots.

Thank you! No Macro lens, just the "flower" mode, handheld.
