Thank you, Nancy!
Oh “magic”… you hit my soft spot…
There is nothing ordinary about these shots…they are absolutely phenomenal! (Says the woman named after an ordinary honey bee :-))
Melissa means Honey Bee? Really really?
Really, really 🙂
Pure gold my dear Kat!
I don’t know why but I find the bee covered with pollen very moving. Perhaps the grace and balance of the moment? Glorious shots.
He is so sweet, no? He had to stop every couple of minutes to wipe all the pollen off his face and keep going, ploughing onwards, drunken weaving in and out of the bounty he had come upon…
Oh, that pollen-covered bee is fantastic!
Isn’t he a cutie?
i second M@EGF’s comment – that is exactly what i was thinking as i lingered over these exquisite images!!
THIS is what i aspire to – amazing kat! no ordinary shots, from no ordinary woman. ❤
Beeautiful, so gorgeous, Kat! I am a bee lover, but these are just stunning!
Very happy to please a bee-lover… 🙂
Great shots for this challenge, Kat!
Thank you! I enjoyed yours enormously 🙂
Extra-Ordinary macros 😀 ,sweet and sharp in all the right places
I’m gonna take your pun at face value and say THANKS!!!
exquisite close-ups…love the pollen on the bee. The ordinary truly becomes extraordinary when we pay such close and careful attention…
Kat, these are absolutely spectacular photos Hope you have a great end to the week. Best regards, James
Thanks very much, James 🙂
That bee in the flower is amazing!!!! Really well captured Kat 🙂
He was, like, drunk with pollen all over himself…
LOL!! He certainly looked very happy 🙂
These are so beautifully captured, real talent!
Amazing macro shots! The colors are so wonderful here.
