Title: Couldn't do this again if I tried

This isn't technically a macro shot, but I think it's in the spirit of macro photography. Sometimes, you just get lucky.

Killer shot, yes that bee does look angry. He might be an assassin!  :D

That's pretty.  You still need to be ready when you got lucky!

He does, doesn't he?

Brilliant photograph.  I hope the following frame wasn't a random shot of the ground with you running away...

Am I the only person who saw the bee only on the third look at this incredible image?

What got to me first, was the way the sunflowers have so much depth and saturation.  The whole texture of the image is wonderful.  More than simple reportage, the composition, while perhaps not perfect, is near perfect, and works very well in square format.  The colors work well together.  The lighting, is superb.  Everything is harmonious and pleasing.

And I said to myself... ya know, I hate photographing sunflowers.  They're usually surrounded by angry bees.....

And then, after my next look.  I looked again.

And there was the bee.

Absolutely fantastic stroke of serendipity.

Well done!

Wonderful shot!   I really love how you presented it with the bee 90 degrees to the ground while the horizon is tilted.  It draws us in to the bee's world.  Again, REALLY nice work!

On yet another look (very close from the Xlarge online image)

That bee is doing something very interesting.

Obviously, the bee is in a turn.  Its wings are banked, its legs follow the angle of roll created by the wings, yet, its head is twisted to maintain a horizontal attitude.

I find this very interesting because thats exactly what human pilots do, and human motorcyclists do too, for that matter, whenever they take a sharp angled turn.

Bravo.  Great image!

Yes, some not bad insect in flight shots, but cast a look at these, http://www.pbase.com/carlogalliani/insects_in_flight, (http://www.pbase.com/carlogalliani/insects_in_flight,) not mine but would love them to be. also if you love macro look here  http://www.dgrin.com/forumdisplay.php?f=23 (http://www.dgrin.com/forumdisplay.php?f=23) You will need to go to carlos macro section and look for insects in flight.
