That's freakin bee-u-t-ful! Lets see if we can keep this a (better than) perfect score, view #2, fav #3 and like #3!

Merci, David. Je suis heureux parce que vous aimez cette photo!

Awe, shucks, Ken!

You froze it with your camera, but with something else too I suspect :) Every time I see these shots I want to go try the focus stacking myself. Where is that extra day between saturday and sunday when you need it???

Yikes! I should know better than to go full-size on your insects right before bed time.

Not at all, Jeroen, I just brought the little fellow in from the rain. I'm sure you'll find time eventually!

hahahaha, kenfowkes! I'll take that as a compliment!

Thanks, DJ. I quite enjoy looking at the details so I figured others would also.

And it kept still during 28 takes? You truly are a magician. I hope my admiration for the result does not get lost in my questions about your 'modus operandi' :)

I suppose he was so happy to be out of the rain that he played nice! I was wondering what the drops of liquid between his eyes was, I thought maybe perspiration from the stage fright!

Jereon and Ken Kruse, an amazing thing has happened around my house the last couple of days. I suppose the changing season is the cause but I keep seeing carpenter bees just frozen in place. I literally saw 15 bees on one small section of flowers beside my patio. Its like a macro-photographer's dream come true!

Kenneth Kruse on October 19, 2012

Sounds like a Twilight Zone episode!

You sure have a way with bees, Kev! Way to go, buddy!

Kevin Childress on October 27, 2012

I just like it when they sit still, Sir!

theverbiage on October 31, 2012

What? A bee whisperer, too, Sir?

Kevin Childress on November 4, 2012

I only speak the language in a certain frequency. :)

Erik van den Ham on November 4, 2012

Wow what a beauty!!!! And lucky you to find them frozen like this besides your patio. A Big Like and I want it to Bee at my Favorites too!

Greetings, Erik

Ps. Love your website looks really good!!

Kevin Childress on November 5, 2012

Hello, Erik, and thank you very much for the big like! I think that was my last bee macro for the season. The weather has turned cold enough now that they've all gone away. Mmmmmm, I wonder where they go .... ?
