Honey Bee

The honey bee is having a great time with buddleia bursting out colour in the garden. I went close-up using an old macro lens to capture the beautiful detail in the wings and bodies.

I like this shot because the shape and texture of a bee wing looks flat, unlike this photograph. We can see folds, shapes and textures of these little miracles of flight.
