I have always wanted to pat furry bees, but I know better than to do that.

Esther.....

The bumblies are very benign really..... I have had them stroke the lens with their foot and stroke me. I have a neice who when small always was able to "charm'' bees...

Approached and handled with care... they are fine. Its also something not to be taken for granted !! They have "bad days" too !

Thankyou Marj.

Marj... this is taken with the Sony HX400V.. so its the fixed lens... and it means getting in reallllllll close !!!!

I have the Sony a65 too and several lenses.. and I hate the macro lens on that ans it hates me !

I do love the HX400 for macro

That is actually the colour of these bees eyes.. it was what I was trying to get... weird colours... I didnt get them a shape as I would have liked.. but you can see the strange tint.

Wow. We have them in the spring around our house - they love our neighbor's deck. But I've never seen one close-up (buzzing things frighten me). He's actually quite beautiful.

Thankyou Robin ...

These Bumblies are very benign in all their species too.

Oh, how I wish y'all could have seen Pam J following him around ! That is a story in itself ... was sure she was going to touch him with her lens ... she was ThaT close !
At times, it is much more interesting to watch Pam than the visitors on the flowers !
