Great shot. I never knew their wings were transparent.

The detail is terrific and I'm impressed that the lines in the wings are so clear.

Wow! This is a fantastic macro. I know how small those mallow blooms and bees are. I love the dusting of pollen on his behind. :)

I think the bee might sting you if she sees this photo. She will be thinking, "do these horizontal stripes make my rear look big?"

The colour of the bloom is beautiful. Either that's a huge bee or a small flower. :)
