Sharp shot of the bee. I bet you are glad he was not coming right for you.

That's pretty amazing actually. Photographing bees in flight is something that I've found to be very dangerous and very difficult, looks like you were able to pull it off though. This is a great photo.

Very nice picture, the 55-300 really looks tempting now!
Can't wait for my tax break!

Wow, must have been a really quick "point and shoot" thing!

Really nice job on capturing this shot. I would have most likely run in the opposite direction away from this little guy.

Thanks everyone stopped by to look at the picture . It was pure lucky though, when I was aiming at the flowers, then there were too many bees around and they kind of little slowly moving from one flower to the next , and I thought "Why not?" so through the lens I follwed them . On this guy, I followed and took 9 shots and this was the only one got in focus (I did not do the machine gun thing like most of the big brand guys though, I don't see challenging in that kind of taking picture).
