As you may have read in my Black and White Topic I recently took my pool apart, and for anyone that has/had an above ground pool you know (maybe) bees like to get under that edge, so as we took up the edge a lot of bees were homeless. I got to be good friends with them I took quite a few photos all pretty much looking like this one.

I'm lucky I only got stung about 3 times :), yes I used the word 'lucky' I spent about 10 minutes photographing them with the flash and all, so they didn't really seem to angry for that.

Comments and Feedback always welcome.

Jake

EDIT: Changed the title to 'Wasp' I am not much of a insect expert.

That's a wasp isn't it? if it were a Bee it would have died after stinging you.

Having said that it's an AMAZING shot. Very well done indeed. :D
