WOW!

The sharpest bee shot I've seen in ages! Great Photo, Eaglem, my compliments.
Just a quick question or two...What f/stop? Shutter speed? Did you use flash? Did the bee sting you? LOL!

So...I just acquired a new macro lens....just, like, yesterday night....with the intent to go stalk the winged bugs in the back yard to try to one-up up you......and then you had to go raise the bar like that!

Not fair, eaglem! Not fair...positively impressive shot!

Given where you've set the bar, you probably should shelve your cameras and pick up another hobby for a couple of decades -- I hear that string theory is interesting

Or, just continue to feed my inferiority complex - I throughly enjoy your work (with envy)...
