I pulled this shot from my archives and applied a little post processing in Photo Impact. It was taken on a sunny fall day back in October and I had intended to submit it a while ago, but forgot..lol! Please comment or critique. Thanks!

    Even bees are addicted to coke, Don! Great find and capture, my dear friend! I really love the colors and details on this little guy! However I would never dare to get this close...lol. Keep up the great work, my friend! I'm sure you still have many goods shots in your collection. C'mon dig them out and let us enjoy!

Thanks Sanjay, but I think we both know that my shots aren't very good as evidenced by their lack of comments and results of BP judging. 2 runner-ups in 4 months isn't exactly what you would call a stellar performance!

Thanks a lot, Wally, C.J., Cathy, Janet, Len, Murry, Izzy and Dan!

Janet, funny that you should mention this since a few years back I actually got stung inside the mouth by a regular bee that had gotten inside a can of Mountain Dew that I was drinking. Fortunately, he only stung me 1 time and I was about to spit him out before swallowing! So, as you can imagine, I also always look inside before drinking now too!
