Default Bee Beetle

This weekend I saw a bumble bee that was flying rather strange so I went to take a look.




It stayed rather high on the hibiscus, so after getting something to stand on I could take some closer shots.






Then it got tired of me, flew away and landed for a short time on a daisy a bit further.



All taken with a pentax k20d and kiron 105mm.

Hope you enjoyed them

Ronny

Amazing, Ronny. You are fantastic at this macro stuff. I had looked at these earlier quickly and definitely notice a difference with my monitor set differently.

Hairy beast, isn't it? In #2 it looks like it is sporting a Mohawk on its head!

Nice - as usual.

Ronny, as usual your macro work is fantastic. # 4 for me too.

The one with the tick sent shivers down my spine as I got Lime Disease 3 years ago from a dear tick bite. The tick that did the damage was smaller than the head of a pin.

I never saw a Bee Beetle before. Cool looking insect.

Another amazing macro series I see from you Ronny. I should say #2 and #4 are my faves!

Thanks, I noticed the tick only when looking at the result. Somehow made me wonder if I really want to go that close next time I find one.
