Last night, a very large bee was attracted by my desk lamp and spent a while hanging out by my computer. I have my macro lens back thanks to some new batteries for my Nikon, so I was happy to get it out and try for a few shots.
I think the bee looks more interesting in the enlarged photos than it does in real life.
Check out that face!
The wings sparkled like glass in the lamp light.
It looks like a soft and cuddly toy.
And, while we are at it, here’s a macro photo of a tiny but beautiful moth that also landed on my desk.
