Busy Buzzy beez

took this some years ago, on 35 mm film, took me hrs to get the bees where I was set up, finally used a spoon of sugar water inside the rose, and that attracted them.

Beautiful shot, and creative idea to get them all to the same flower, at the same time...I'll have to keep that in mind!!!!

Oh, thanks for the trick of the sugar water :-)) I can picture you having the perfect settings for your scene but not a single bee around, hahaha. But this is gorgeous, cool framing, and I like how the third one is approaching the promised land....
