Challenge has finished
This is always a very popular subject, so I'm repeating it for your enjoyment. You may enter any type of bee, whether it is a honey bee, a bumble bee, or a native bee. The bee/bees must be outside, on flowers, leaves, buzzing around, or just doing what bees do; NOT under studio lights. NO flies, or other insects. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Size: MAXIMUM 1,600px on LONGER SIDE.
