PLEASE READ THE RULES!!! Many of the entries in my Bees challenge were disqualified as they were not bees. I am opening another challenge for ALL these little flying things .. Insects to be exact. Well most of them. Neither butterleis nor moths. Bees and Bumble bees won't be welcomed, they already had their very own challenge.... The insects SHOULD be on flowers and should be MACRO. A big close-up of the insect!!!
