Bee Macro Close Up Pictures

On a beautiful like today, Labor day, a perfect day to practice with my Macro lens taking close up pictures of the insects in our garden. And since the Mint has plenty of blossom, there are bee's flying off and on to grab the honey out of the flowers.

See here the results of around 100 shots with my Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens, taken with a Canon 5D.
