Bee macro, Heesch, Netherlands Found dead in the garden. This was a full body shot, yet it was such a dirty specimen, that no amount of post processing could fix it. My foolish attempt to wash it made it even worse. So instead, here&#039;s a crop of the head. <br />

This is one supremely hairy creature, optimized to carry as much pollen as possible. Even the eyes have hairs, it is speculated that these hairs are used for determining wind direction. Extreme Macro Click/tap to enlarge
