I've tried for this shot several times, and never have managed anything this good yet.

Wow. Perfect timing to catch this little guy in flight. Looks like he's got quite a load of pollen there.

Peter: this is indeed a sight to behold. What did you feed this guy to make it pose for you and hover so garcefully? Trust all goes well and my warmest congratulations with this magnificent image.

At 5 frames per second and with 945 shots later, you were bound to get one decent shot.

Peter!!! WOW!!! This is freaking AWESOME! I want it to have a ribbon under it! But congratulations on an honorable mention. It could not be a more flawless, appealing macro. And to catch the bee in flight like that. Having spent hours hunched over flowers for a shot like this (to no avail), I appreciate how difficult it is to do!

I tend to get a little tired of the bugs on this site - but this one is exceptional. There is a wonderful sense of movement in this nice, bright image. I wish there was more DOF but I must say this in still a captivating shot. Nice job.
