-LOVE- it. Me and my mom have had a long love for bees, especially the fuzzy kind. She literally squee'd when she saw this. I've never seen a bright bee before, it's truly new and wonderful to me. Also, amazing macro.

I spotted this guys in Hortpark. I also go to Botanic Garden. If u see someone with a tripod and a DIY diffuser infront of his camera, that would probably me. cheers! :)

@ seanweekly - i don't see them regularly, u just to be patience and persistent for u to see these beautiful insects. Sometimes i just see them flying in front of me and gone so fast. I just keep coming back to the place where I saw them and try my luck. There's lots of times that I don't have a single shot after a whole day of shoot, believe me.. ;-)
