'Not bad at all for an amateur', as we say in Oz when we are impressed.

Now Chevvy, let me see one BIF with 'tongue in cheek', eh?

Re: Bee in flight - tongue out :)

Interesting shot, it may bee [sic] in some kind of distress, looks like it has a few bee mites on it.

Oh Pete, I wish you hadn't told us that! Poor little thing!
Chevvy - now we need to see a photo of a Bee Mite please?

Apologies Lyn. Nature is brutal at times, and mites/ticks and other parasites are so foul.

I just had a read around and yes, those three pink mites are likely to be the problem (there will be many more not visible). It even states in several places that the exposed proboscis is a signal of distress due to mite infestation, bees become weakened and susceptible and the mites effectively finish them off. Those mites on that bumble are not the now infamous and dreaded varroa mite, as the varroa only infects the hives of the two main honey bee species.

It all makes the image that more fascinating.

It is fascinating Pete, and thank you for the info. I had never thought of mites attacking such small things, although am aware when watching the birds bathe in my bird bath that they are most likely doing it to get rid of mites etc. I like to think they are having fun too.
I guess beekeepers have to spray their hives against infestation too?
I must follow this up for interests sake.

Re: Bee in flight - tongue out :)

We're all carrying freeloaders of one kind or another. Summed up a great many years ago by the author Jonathan Swift...

Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitum...

With the electron microscope, this has proved so, so true... I'm off now for a good scratch.

It's just been very badly brought up.

Superb photo though Chevvy! How on earth did this one end up languishing for "a few months"?

David, periodically, I lose my MoJo and just get fed up with my photos and my photography ... then sometime later I may look through photos of a day out and see "something like this" and think "I could share that, it may entertain some friends!"

I have a few from our hols - must go and find them - I know you'all will LURVE THEM
