Bee Collecting Pollen

Bee Collecting Pollen I caught this great shot this morning completely by accident. I was trying to get the shot of the bee on the flower, but it wasn't till I got back to my computer and looked at the image properly did I notice the pollen flying everywhere. The only thing that would have made this perfect is if the bee had been sharper (and maybe a bit softer lighting..and...and... :-) ). I think it was a combination of motion blur (although the shutter speed was 2000ths of a second) and it being just this side of the focal plane. It all happened so fast. Still, I love that you can see the pollen flying about.

Here's a closer crop of the action !
