Very cool and very good macro of that sweat bee on the flower. I really like the colors and details that you captured in that sweat bee. The flowers center is equally detailed. Well done.

How did you get such an excellent shot so close up without that insect abandoning the flower?
Really great picture!

Cool pic. An unusual looking insect, for me at least. Strange head shape. Nice colour.

Great shot, if it's like other Sweat Bees I've seen it doesn't sting and is not aggressive

Hi Angky. It was a relatively chilly day so the bugs are sluggish to react to my presence.
