Suspended in air, the bumblebee contemplates, "have I been here already"?😊. Great detailed shot of the bee frozen in time. It takes a fast shutter speed to catch a bee in flight with only slight wing blur. Nice work, Todd.

Very great capture--precise and perfectly timed, both in shutter speed and also in capture timing.

A very well constructed wildlife capture. I especially like the settings you employed. Makes a lot of sense in such an awesome image. Many thanks for posting.
