Fiery bee

I saw this bee up to his neck in the center of a rose in the midst of the Exposition Park Rose Garden, right in the heart of Los Angeles, California. He seemed pretty busy, so I had no trouble getting right up close to him.

 

One shot JPEG, hand-held Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera, with M.Zuiko 12-50mm lens in macro mode, 43mm focal length (86 mm FF equivalent), ISO 200, 1/500-sec, f/6.

 

Have a great weekend, everyone. And best of luck to everyone competing at the Olympics. May they all represent their countries with pride and honor.
