Found this bee hard at work on a cutleaf coneflower during a hike on the Cub Lake trail, Rockies National Park, Colorado. His orange color caught my eye. The background was a large boulder.

Excellent close work Doug!

You have done a great job composing this photo too, just the right balance, perfect depth of field, and very natural looking color.

Check out these bees . . .
