A Pollen Laden Bee








Today I am sharing some photos I took on July 27th of an already heavily pollen laden bee visiting our hibiscus to collect even more pollen. It is amazing he managed to fly!

Sharing today with the Macro Monday  meme.

  4. Great macro photos! I have never seen a bee like that!
    Thanks for your visit and comment. Hong Kong was just a stopover. Normally I have to wait there 4 hours on my way back home, but now I had a 28 hours delay. We couldn't leave the airport building because of the typhoon.
    I agree with you that H K is a beautiful city!

  24. Linda that really is an amazing photo, I have to agree how did it manage to fly away laden down like that. I wish I had macro on my camera, I get a few lucky shots but not as many as I would like :-( Take care Diane

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
