Thnaks for all the fine comments. It is indeed a rather rare bee, although it is very easy to recognize only 58 specimens have been observed in the last 15 years for Belgium, form which I've been able to detect 17 in my region only.

Sorry didn't notice the correction. just changed it.
Aparently in my photo archives it was stored as Scleroderma citrinum, so I must have done something wrong during upload or so ...
Thanks for the (appreciated) correction !

I see the white in the eyes there , indeed. So far I do not use a flash (did so before) but with the camera's noise levels being that far better I actually try to work without and go higher into the ISO settings... sometimes having to de-noise the shot but it offers me more 'natural colors' . Heavy sunweather however is another disaster ;-) . Coudl a diffuser help you out (alhough on a ringflash .. I've not seen any myself )

It's quite a colorfull bug and possibly not all that easy to photograph when sunny (reflection)

Indeed they are not all that big and quite reactive. It actually flew away 2 times before I could make the shot ;-)
