I thought the clarity of the bees wings in this shot was very interesting as you can see the veins of the bees wings and the light reflecting off of the plastic like wing.

Scottish pebble art picture; Beehive

Beautiful pebble picture using a mixture of natural materials. In this picture you see the little pebble bees busily flying in and out of their pebble beehive. It is made in the Scottish Borders using natural materials gathered locally. Using natural material means that no two pictures will ever be quite the same, making this a completely unique addition to any room. The picture size, including frame, is 25x25cm If you are outside the UK, please contact me for shipping costs. All parcels…

English Bumble Bee ~ I love this picture. Bees are actually pretty gentle, and almost like little flying fuzz balls...

Pictures of the day: 13 January 2012

A bee balances two water droplets on its back as it perches on a flower. The picture was taken by keen photographer Agus Sudarmanto near Doha, Qatar. He said: "There is no rain at all here so we have to spray water periodically on flowers. This is the reason there were drops on the bee, but it was amazing how it was just delicately balanced on his back."
