The effect is lovely.
This bee has perhaps been brought up in a glass house! lol

Amazing what can be seen when the photo is this close and clear. The wings are transparent and very fragile.

The wings look fantastic and so does your capture, Sharon.

Amazing photo I wonder what the purpose is that evolution has resulted in transparent wings.

Excellent! I was going to post a bee pic on Florida Fotos today but I'm glad I didn't as your shot is much better!

Amazing macro Sharon. I also looked at David's menu from last week, looks like a fabulous meal and great time had by all.
