Great image, as usual, Jams. Wow.
Your shots are so interesting. I think I need to get a bit more creative with my camera :)
I like watching bees, but they scare me, too...
Oh. It's a wasp? It looked like a bee at first glance. You jsut reminded me, I have a wasp's nest right outside my door that I should try to get rid of... LOL.

This is a beautiful photo, but real size, it is just awesome with the pollen all over the little wasp.
