Excellent!

Did you blur the background in photoshop or was that all from DOF?

Well I've seen bees get pollen on themselves but that really takes some beating. Great shot.

Its all DOF. Taken with a Tamron 70-300 at 300mm f5.6 at 1/180

All insects including Ladybug and Grasshopper were really co-operative today.

Here's the uncropped original.

Very nice shot!

Caught this feller last month - not as covered with pollen, but fascinating nonetheless. Used Sigma 105mm macro
