I'm amazed at these photos!
Awesome shots of the bee. Well done!
She is feasting on that flower, must be very sweet!MY Camera Critters
Absolutely gorgeous -- great to have bumble bees.
Nice shots! I wish I can take a photo like this.
Amazing detail on the honey bee! I love how you can see the pollen baskets and each little insect hair.
What great pictures. I haven't seen bees around much lately. I'm adding these asters to my list and seeing if they would grow here. They are so pretty.
Lovely, lovely!! I admire your shots !! Makes me wish I could paint :)
So close I could see their eyes and their furry body!! I hope you have this tagged for search engines because I think you'll get a lot of hits.
That bee is obviously having a great time in the aster! You know you've got a winner for pollinators with that plant :)
I feel the caption for most of these photos could very well be "Nom nom nom!" :)
Oh my those are awesome shots...seriously cool! what a lovely flower, asters rock! Kim
Award winning photos. Just fantastic!
Great photos Sweetbay, most of all it is the sunshine that sparkles that caught my eye. Great bees.
They are simply splendid!
Great macros...marvelous light and composition....thats as close as I want to get to that bee!
I can actually see the bee's knees. Amazing! And look at those delicate wings. Sweetbay, these are wonderful photos.
Yes, it is cool to see the details on the bees. The wings are my favorite parts. Those asters sure are awesome!
What a busy bee. Great captures.Barbara
Sweet Bay ~ you always amaze me with your photos. These are so pretty. I think your bee ~ hover fly(???) looks like the same one I found recently?? Although, if it is, I'm sure yours is much happier with more flowers to visit!
Fantastic photos of the bees! You can see every detail of their gossamer wings here. I really need to plant more asters!
Seeing your bees so close is fantastic! I feel as if I am right there and can almost hear their wings.Rain and cold at my house...no bees today!So enjoyed catching up with you this morning.Happy New Moon!Sherry
Always great photos.We've been plagued with asian hornets over here. They were introduced to SW France by accident about 6 years ago and now there are millions. So many hover over the grapes on the vines that its practically a no go area in mild weather at this time of year
These are amazing macros and the colors are gorgeous. Great focus on the bee. I love macros myself.
these are great close-up shots!!! the air must be humming with their buzz :)
Sweetbay, They are the best photos I've seen of two favorites~~bees and asters. Wonderful treat this morning! gail
Those shots are just spectacular! Well, done!
Hi Sweet Bay, I am in love with your bee shots and the aster! So clear, I feel like a bee voyeur. And in your bloom day post, Clotilde won my heart as well as Bessie. Just love all around! :-)Frances
