Honeybee (Apis mellifera) on Forget-me-not

After a seemingly endless search for the “perfect” bee shot, I decided last summer to skip a year in taking them. I have some nice bee shots, but I became so tired of sorting through them I don’t even want to look at a bee on a flower for a while.

However…

For some reason I took this shot in the middle of a bunch of other macro shots back in May – and it turned out rather well. I have several shots of bees with their “tongues” stuck out – but this guy actually has it IN a flower from a forget-me-not.

Closer Crop – you can see the tongue better:
