Big Bee, Little Bee

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Big Bee, Little Bee
Big Bee, Little Bee
10/4/10, macro. Look closely just beneath the big bee. A tiny pollen-covered bee flew in to share the meal.

Absolutely astounding, Carol. That is the best bee-head photo I've ever seen. Such amazing macro details and the perfect in-your-face composition. What a big (no pun) plus with that little guy under there. I definately would have missed him as I was gawking at the BIG ONE.

OMG...this is something else!! The details are incredible, Carol! Love those amazing eyes. Did you ever see the movie, "Food of the Gods?" The insects somehow grow to be enormous and eat people (okay...so my taste in movies is a bit skewed...lol). This "Big Bee" looks a bit scary...at least to the little guy...I'm sure. Deb

Wow...that big bee is a giant in comparison...doesn't seem to effect little bee in his quest for pollen, though! Excellent macro, Carol...the deatails are incredible!
