Bee in the sun
« on: March 16, 2012, 01:44:07 AM »
Took these in my front garden in Sydney this afternoon, of this nice looking Australian native bee (no stinger on it).
It's sucking up a Muraya flower, another Australian native, which has a diameter of around 1/2" (12mm), so the bee  is pretty small.

Taken with my Canon 60D and a Sigma 150mm F2.8 OS macro.

Hope you like them.
