Bee — Macro Monday

Hi all 😁 This is my entry for Sunshine’s Macro Monday.

I was going through my archives in response to a different challenge and came across this shot of a bee I’d forgotten about.

Mon the Bee 🐝

Just to clarify; the bee isn’t called Mon. Mon is the scots abreviation for Come On. I was out for a walk when I saw some wild roses alongside the path; most of the flowers have gone now, but there were still a few blooms left. I went to get a closer look at this particular flower and saw that a large bee had taken up residence in the middle of it. Whilst he was busy collecting what he could, he was getting constantly hassled by a couple of hover flies that wanted in on the action; but he wasn’t budging, mon the bee 😁.
