    One way of getting the little bugger to stay still for long enough to get good MF!

    I winder if they have teeth... Great shots.

    Very cool Andree! Did you unstick him before you left? (I am an unrepentant nature lover...I used to pet bumblebees as a kid...yes, pet them. At least when I was not catching frogs and snakes...)
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!
