Bee and Hover Fly




I found this bee on the deck today, it wasn't moving much, so I scooped it up on a leaf and put it on the sedum. Then I saw a lot of hover flies around the sedum and managed to get some macros of them as well (they are fast!). In the first one you can see its tongue and in the second one you can see my reflection.

These are beautiful Karen. So clear. You were brave to get so close though.

Great macros! I don't know that I would have gone and moved them around for a shot!
