Up close and personal with pollen

An almost-wordless Wednesday post from my photo archives – in the days when I could shoot these things freehand, simply by breathing out and holding my breath. My hands aren’t quite as steady without a tripod today. Blame the heavy lens.

No idea what the bee species is, but it was really getting into the pollen on these pre-lilyleaf beetle Asiatic lilies. Bless its little polleny behind!
