The back of its head almost like a face thus it's lying on its backe with arms behined its head or have I lost the plot
Ray: Ha ha!

Totally lost the plot, I think, Vintage.
Superb composition Ray. I love the colours!
Ray: Sort of honeybee ensemble colours, here, Richard! Thanks for your kind comment.
Another wonderful close up Ray, almost every hair on the back of its head can be made out.
Ray: I didn't appreciate how furry honeybees are, Brian, until I started photographing them up close.
one of your more amazing shots.
even the back of this one holds ones attention!!
Ray: Thanks, Rob.

I was a bit hesitant about showing this boring old back view of a common honeybee, but the reaction has been good.
Perfect clarity, you can be proud, HC
Ray: Handheld, on a windy gets a lucky shot occasionally. [grin]
