    Default Ready for take off

    ID: Red dwarf honeybee

    One of the most common honeybee spotted in the society's garden, this tiny colony of bees seem to frequent a particular wet patch of the garden area, and many can be seen quenching their thirst from the moist soil. While surrounded by small blades of grass, these were observed getting off onto the tips of them, traversing to the base and eventually walk upto the tip to fly off, almost like a series of flights lining up at the runway.

    This is lovely. Interesting behaviour captured. The honey bee is in focus. The honeybee is at the centre of the frame. So I think a bit less space on the right would have made the composition a bit more dynamic. Also, there seems to be some dust spots in the sensor. Ideally they shouldn't at f8. You may like to clean the sensor. Thanks for sharing.

    Best,
