Fly to me.....

I have spent years trying to get a shot of a bee in flight with my 300mm zoom lens without success..... today i finally caught a bumble bee enjoying the rapeseed flowers near Bridgwater in Somerset. :-)

Exceptional capture.
I like the contrast between the rusty bee & the pale yellow of the rape.
I'm glad it doesn't grow here though.
Rape honey is vile & the crop is quite heavily sprayed.
