Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

Selecting the right bee with trace of pollen on legs and tracking it all the way from flower to flower on knee was a tough job for me. I was on knee as I did not want a top angle and the bee was restless..and then the right moment came- she was ready to land and I was ready with my thump on the shutter release button..
