I spotted this honeybee feeding in a zucchini flower and knew she'd be covered in some huge pollen, but the flower was very low to the ground and it was just a really bad angle to shoot from. So when she landed on a nearby grape vine to clean herself I took a chance and got her to feed from my finger. There was so much pollen on the poor girl that it was falling like snow.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (~1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I am the finger model.

"Le vent m'appelle, je vais te quitter
Je ne suis pas aussi pressée que le vent,
Mais il me faut m'en aller.
De la graine de plantes tenaces
Je trouve mon épanouissement 
En me dispersant à tous vents.
Je pars avec le vent
Mais ne m'enfonce pas dans le néant". K.Gibran

Well, I'm pretty proud of me this time. I had already met a dragonfly once, although it was impossible to make a picture.
This one was calm and peaceful, I have even been able to touch it with my finger !

They tend to become strange and fluffy at some point, trust me...
