Found this miner bee in a camellia flower waiting for the sun to come out again. Think it's an Andrena haemorrhoa female.

#4 and #6 are my preferences: excellent color and composition, bokeh + keeping highlights under control.

My apologies Brian -I just realized that I was coming back to this thread to view your work and I had not commented. Love the light and the compositions and that last frame deserves to be printed large and framed 8-)
