another wonderful shot, Ray. i like how it looks clean and tidy, the exposure as well.
Ray: I was pleased to get both bees in frame, Ayush, and delighted that they were approximately in focus.
Beautiful shot, Ray!
Ray: You are very kind, Elizabeth.

I expect these to come whizzing our of my screen any moment, Ray
Ray: Ha ha

Bees can be a bit unpredictable, Lisl. I have a serious [perhaps dangerous] allergy to bee stings, so need to be a bit careful around them. Fortunately, Thailand's many bee species are nearly all non-aggressive.

This is absolutely BRILLIANT with that bee in flight heading for lunch. I don't think we'd call anything KRAPOW in the UK Ray, it wouldn't sell..
Ray: I am delighted you approve of the image, Chris.

I must admit to smiling a bit about Krapow as the name of a herb...however, the taste of it in something like a stir-fry serious kick-starts the salivary glands.

Looks like there is a queue forming. Thee is a certain attraction to these insects - thanks to your skills.
Ray: You are very kind, Alan. Garden bugs have become seriously of interest to me, and I can thank photography for that.

Deux d'un coup, magnifique !
Ray: J'ai été ravi d'avoir les deux abeilles dans le cadre, Martine.
I imagine the creature on the left curses that damn stuff that gets stuck to its legs.
Ray: "Why the hell do I always get pollen-gathering duty...punishment for something I am deemed to have done?"

Oh, there could be a conflict - but the plant may feel flattered.
Ray: Occasionally there are disputes, but they are always settled quickly and harmlessly.
A fine shot of these industrious insects at work.
Ray: Thank you, Martin.
Such eyes must be very complicated as we think of eyes as round. So interesting.
Ray: It is possible the working parts of the eyes are round, and the rest is just for pleasing form, Mary.
very colourful looking insects aren't they.
Ray: Honeybees are attractive critters.
These make a handsome pair!
Ray: I was pleased to catch both in the frame, Tom.
The first name is more appealing Ray
Ray: Krapow is a bit more like the sensation of exploding taste buds when you eat some, Bill...it is a delicious herb.
