Concealed Weapon?

Concealed Weapon?
I hadn't noticed the reflective side on the bee's knee until I looked at this shot on the computer...... To be honest it looks like the blade of a knife (please view large), and now I'm wondering are these guys as harmless as some would make out.... LOL LOL

I do love being able to capture these kinds of photos though. I have such a fear of bees and wasps, but following them around with the 300mm zoom lens makes it a little easier :)

I'm sure someone will see this and explain what the reflective panel actually is - I'm guessing its the empty pollen sack?

Have a great Monday everybody. Another day off work makes it a really great one for me :)

Excellent macro, Glenda!!!
I wonder if that's where the old expression "the bees knees" came from!!

I used to be very scared of bees when I was a child. I was stung. Now I love them and talk to them while I photograph. This is a stunning photograph.

A beautiful shot, guess this is a bumblebee? The ones here are busy on Wisteria blossoms.
