Kalanchoe flower

That is beautiful. Is that native to your area? I see Google mentions 'also Asia'. Brisbane ain't Asia though :-)
Do you shoot raw? I looked at the exif data and I gather so.
Lovely flower, equally lovely capture.

Two very nice shots, Oh. The bees certainly seem to be enjoying themselves.

Thank you, they do. These cacti are such bee magnets. The flowers start to open in early evening and the bees get right to work. There's a brief window for shooting just before bee bedtime. Bees return in the morning, when the flowers are closing slowly.
