I love the regal stance of this bee atop the crown of a yellow Milkweed flower! So busy collecting that he or she hardly noticed me just inches away with my macro lens. Look at the shiny enamel-like legs and the ephemeral translucent wings. The fuzzy body and large eyes. One of my favorite aspects of photography is the ability my camera gives me to show you clearly what you should focus in on as you look at the picture. The bee and the topmost flowers!
