I find bees really hard to image. They're so quick at moving from one flower to another.

Me too, I have a load of blurred pictures.

These are just so incredibly shap Derek.

Cheers guys, they can be difficult to shoot,, they really do shift from flower to flower.
I was way lazier than you. On the the other forum I just called it a tongue thingy :rofl: :rofl:
I think you are correct though. :thumb: :thumb:
