Bees in Flight

I saw these flowers yesterday but it was pretty poor lighting out, nearly rain. Today there was sun and a flock of bees! 473 shots later I got a few keepers! :-) The first image is taken with my 90mm macro lens, the second with my fisheye. Surprisingly unique perspective I could get and much faster to focus. Of course, I had to have the lens about a half inch from the bee..... Made a few of them nervous and some simply didn't care. Great fun!

Talk about an action shot! The golden yellow of the bee looks so cool with the purple flowers.

The first one is excellent but I have to say that the second is my favorite. It looks like a movie scene, another world made of flowers :]
