Excellent capture. The bee is so crisp and he looks like a power bomber.
Bill Phillips: He certainly looks to be on a mission Beth!

The body is perfect.y still but the wings are going crazy. Imagine if it was the other way round Bill.
Bill Phillips: It would be messy Chad

what a superb capture
Bill Phillips: There was a lot of luck here. I was taking a picture of this flower and the overfly appeared just as I was about to press the shutter!
