Honey Bee

Apis mellifera

Description:

This was photographed in my front yard. Bees are busy and don't seem to stay in one position very long. I like the catch light from the flash in its eyes

Thank you. I was using a 100mm macro lens and positioned myself the achieve the most colorful background. I think I must have taken 200 photos to get a few keepers
