      Wow, this must be one hungry bumblebee (I love the English name,it imitates the rasping noise they make during flight so perfectly.) with "saddle bags" this full it will have been a lavish picnic for sure!
      Just imagine how many more flowers this hard working little thing must have pollinated to look like this, good for you if the photo was taken in your garden.
      Everybody commenting before is right of course: this is a stunning capture, a real "action" shot and I`m genuinely surprised at the details visible on the bumblebee`s body - especially the yellow hairy part and the legs, even more so since this is an in flight macro. Very nice!

      Wow, the movement of the wings is so cool! It is almost like he has problems flying with the heavy load.
