i don't know if bees have arms.....but all 6 legs would have been pretty tired i'd say
what i find amazing is that on my trip home when i didn't know it was still there i was going at freeway speed...100kph, and the little guy must have been clinging with all 6
with any luck it found its hive ok

and on bees.....
i drove to my thursday choir rehearsal last night and as i was pulling away, i noticed a bee on by windscreen, right in line of sight. kept driving cos i thought it would fly off....well it didn't and i was heading for the freeway. felt a bit sorry for it so tried not to go too fast....went about 90kph...and i could see it bunkering down, holding on for dear life. 30 min later i arrived at my destination, was dark by now...bee still there.
decided to leave it , let it fly off.
drove home afterwards, back down the freeway.
this morning drove off to work. on the left side of the windscreen...the BEE is STILL there....alive. bunkered down as i drive.
came out during the morning to see if it was still there, but its gone. i'm kinda relieved that it has a good chance of getting back to its colony after its all night escapade !
What a beeeutiful story PG. winky-winky

Cheryl the only thing with insect pics is to see them they have to be cropped to a certain extent and that makes most of them too small for the wide screens monitors of today..

Having said that I will keep you in mind for a Bee on something white
Which does not happen often though.. Sad

Mary-Anne, obviously, when it comes to your photography, it's not wise to bypass it thinking if you've seen one bee you've seen them all. That's amongst the best photography I've seen, and I was known to cruise through pbase a lot in the past. Do you ever enter photo's for competitions?

Thanks so much Betty ..There are lots of bees around Betty I really enjoy capturing insects best but with a macro lens on your camera you have to be very still, and I am not I seem to get more shaky every year Very Happy I have a monopod (one leg instead of three like a tripod) which I used all the time with the macro lens I do have a tripod but find it very awkward to carry around I am now saving for a lighter better one or a better ball head for my monopod.

No I dont go in for competitions my work is not that good when you see what others can do.
I do submit on a Art Site and have lots of friends there they favour my work and that's enough for me..
