G'day Eysha

Busy little blighters aren't they
You have achieved excellent sharpness & exposure & colour with these images - well done

ps- if you want to try and get them in flight, use the pop-up flash to freeze the wings in motion

Regards, Phil

Very many thanks for the comments, now i feel as though i am progressing a little.
Phil, i will be trying that tip today, thanks. Hope it works in sunlight, lol.
Killerwolf, i liked the second shot too, especially the way one bee looks as if she is cuddling the other bee, or encouraging her,lol.
Mike, that is my favorite one too, i was really pleased with that one.
I have one sunflower in my garden and it is almost always full of bees, which is great as we need them so next year i will have more sunflowers as they obviously love them.
Thanks again for the comments and help, much appreciated.
