How tiny are they?







Compared to a regular sized honey bee, pretty darn tiny! This fellow was collecting pollen, whilst his Mates were drinking nectar. He let me get very, very close, but I needed to get a little closer for better clarity.

However, each time I advanced he flew off the the next flower. Oh well, try again another time, eh?

Macro lens experiment, December 30th.

you must have such patience. I tried capturing a shot of a strange bee we have and I just couldnt catch him. Well done. He is different to my darting about little bee. Guess mine will still be a mystery for a bit.
