Allright, I know the eyes are key in insect photos but I'm pretty darn proud of this pic even though it's of a bee's butt! It was not just a bee, it was huge(nickel sized)! A big freaking hairy monster bee - perhaps even a killer bee - I'm don't know - had that look about him! He had his face so far down in those tasty flowers, I snuck up from behind with my trusty dcr250 hoping I could get the goods on him before henoticed me! I'm sure you'll all be relieved to know I made it out unscathed but a bit stressed! I just had to post this since I worked so hard for it. :blah:

<edit> ummm, did I forget to mention I'm scared of bees?

Nice shot, a wee bit soft. I don't mind bee's, but one that size would worry me too. Been busy counting the hairs on its back. Any head on face to face, lets smile for the cam shots?

The softness may be due to the lens itself. It is only apparent on the edges of this hairy beast. The wings are in focus to me and looks amazing.

I'm amazed that the wings can carry it. You are braver than I.

According to the laws of aeronautics, bees can't fly.

Trouble is, no bee ever did the course!

Nice shot.
