Busy Bee

Our Weeping Cherry is in full blossom at the moment and the bees are loving it. I shot this with an old Pentax screw mount 50mm lens at f 5.6, 1/750 sec, 800 iso with my Canon 550d. Manual focus of course. It took me a few goes to capture the bee at the right focus because I was using an extension ring between the lens and the camera to increase image scale. Hope you like the result.
