Bumble Bee Portrait by boron Bumble Bee Portrait by boron
Hate to see summer leaving, but the cooler weather has some advantages. I would never get this close to a bumble bee when it was warm and active. This guy was too cold to move so I stuck my MP-E 65mm macro lens at 2:1 right in its face (about 2 inches). The circular reflection in its eyes are my ringlight.

:D Nice shot! Though its actually a male (you can tell by the white face) carpenter bee, and not a bumblebee. People get them confused all the time though. :3 Though I prefer capenters myself. They're a lot friendlier.

oh, I commented on this already? I didn't remember... Anyhow, lovely picture of my favorite kind of bee, so...I guess I was drawn back to it.
