Such a gorgeous shade. An almost true blue in a flower. Striking.

Wow, very beautiful, so bright and clear.

Den var da utrolig vakker da du! Aldeles nydelig blåfarge, og humlefar passet jo så nydelig inn!
Flott at du la ut den!

Høres godt ut med hjemmelaget saft!

Petunia said...

Lekkert,Rune!
Både blomsten og humlen, men mest av alt de to sammen.

Mia N said...

A picture sweeter than honey.

Det var riktig et blinkskudd.Travle tider for humlene nå.
Ha en fin kveld!

Carver said...

What a gorgeous flower. I love the color and how the darker veins standout. Also looks like the bumble bee is having a good meal.

Herlig bilde du har fanget i det rette øyeblikket. De har ikke mye til ferie, de står på hele dagen lang. Lekkert bilde!

Dette var utrolig fint!! Har sittet å sett lenge på det... Digger vingene som skinner og er litt gjennomsiktig...

Så vacker bild - humlan ser ju ut att vara gjord speciellt för just denna blomman - den smälter ihop liksom :)
Tack för din snälla kommentar :)

I am really beginning to love the Hardy Geraniums. You caught the bee at a good time, he looks like part of the flower almost.

Denise said...

Stunning photograph, the flower is so beautiful and that little bee is an added bonus. His wings are like stained glass. Thank you for sharing and have a great week.

Pacey said...

Beautiful hardworking bee on a beautiful flower. Great colors. BTW, couldn't play benches for the past few weeks, I lost my files on them. :(

Naturegirl said...

Rune: I think your bumble bee looks special on that neat flower. Nice job of capturing the pair.

I'd call that color somewhat closer to purple than blue, but that a minor detail. And speaking of details, the detail in the flower and butterfly is excellent!

nonizamboni said...

My favorite color and I really like the bee's lines matching the flower. Perfection!

Lew said...

Gorgeous! The fine detail makes this a great image.

Now there's a hard worker.

Regina said...

So gorgeous!

John said...

I've never got into macro myself, but I can appreciate it when someone else gets a good shot. Nice one.

Arija said...

Rune, that is an eztraordinary picture, fullof WOW factor.
Love the way the bee is totally centered. Just wonderful!

Abe Lincoln said...

I didn't know you fancied flowers, RuneE?

Ida said...

Se der ja.
Veldig fint!
Blomster, "bier" og makro.
Tre favoritter hos meg - på en gang. Ikke verst. ;)

Takk for omtanken og kommentaren for og hos meg i dag.
Det er nå seks uker siden jeg ble operert. Går med skinne enda. Bruker også krykker fremdeles, så jeg kommer meg ikke så mye rundt. Dermed må man ta bilder av olivenolje osv. Man tager hva man haver. Hehe!
Har noen bilder i arkivet også, heldigvis.
Ellers har jeg jo nok av motiv i hagen også.
Klarer å gå forholdsvis bra i trapper og ute her nå etterhvert.
Muskelene blir sterkere dag for dag. Takk og lov.

Kneet mitt er opphovnet, og jeg klarer bare å bøye det til 30 grader enda. Det er for lite, ifølge "oppskriften",
så fastlegen min har sendt brev til Haukeland, der han ber om at de fremskynder kontrolltimen min.
Håper at det ikke tar så veldig lang tid.
Jeg trener og bøyer kneet det jeg klarer. Er passelig lei. Men må bare innfinne meg med situasjonen.

Kommer sterkere tilbake! ;)

Pat - Arkansas said...

WOW, Rune! That is one gorgeous macro! Beautiful color in that flower and the bee is perfection!

Stephany said...

Sorry, I'm running behind. Fantastic color and a beautiful photo. You can count the veins in the petals!

Barbara Martin said...

Beautiful flower for a cute litte bee to work on.

Michele- Rocky Mountain Retreat said...

It's as if that bee had come in, and is giving the flower a gentle little hug before it starts doing its work. =)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

The colours are stunning and the bee looks very happy!

PERBS said...
