Its a great macro shot, the bee is really busy getting that nectar, and i like how you have cropped it so that the petals fill the background. Very well captured, great shot.

Beautifull Rafa and a very nice tribute to Jaap. The details are really nice. The bumble bee seem to have been bathing in that flower, all covered in pollen :).

Elle ne perd pas de temps l'abeille, pour butiner elle butine !
Cela fait plaisir à voir, on voit que l'hiver a été long pour l'abeille !
Très bien fait Rafaël. Photo difficile à réaliser.
It does not lose time the bee, for butiner it butine! That given pleasure to see, one sees that the winter was long for the bee! Very well done Rafaël. Photograph difficult to realize. I like much.

I feel much honour Rafael, I thank you for that,
You have made a good macro photo, it's only a shame that you only see the back of the bee, whatever, I just like it, thank you.

Apesar de ser um bocado diferente do que nos tens habituado a ver, esta foto esta muito boa - bastante detalhada.

There's one busy bee, Rafa. It looks like it is literally diving into the center of the flower to take a splash bath. Fine cropping with the petals forming a kind of "crown" around the hard-working insect. Well done, and a nice tribute to Jaap.

Its a great macro shot Rafael, the details are really nice. The bumble bee seem to have been bathing in that flower, thanks for everything.

Very clear shot indeed, well done here, I like the pollen all over the bee and the flower is beautiful, very well done.

Good shot Rafael. So sharp and nicely framed. The contrast between the bee and the flower is well-seen. Any more macro?
jrj (34841) 2004-03-29 11:16
Yes a good macro, Rafael of this bee, deep in work. Very well done..

Fantástico macro! Tributo muito bem conseguido, na minha opinião, ao Carper! Apanhaste a abelha literalmente a enpaturrar-se no meio da flor, está demais!

A very nice macro, Rafael. Besides the be (whice is hard to be recognized as a bee), there is a wonderful pattern of the yellow flower parts - a big mess in the middle and wonderful strait lines aroung. Nice shot.

Funny of picture, she died of hunger! a very clear photograph, I like his position in the flower.
eleparc (24063) 2004-03-31 17:04
Yes rafael i like it a lot! bravo I wish all attempts were so succesful;-) you have a great definition of pollen and the bee is covered with it. I hope she is not allergic to pollens and have hay fever!:-))

Excelentes detalhes Rafael! Dá a sensação que a abelha se pulvilhou toda com o pólen ;) Excelentes cores também. Bom trabalho!
