The Bee and the Purple Coneflower

I shot this a few years ago while taking a lunchtime hike through a park not too far from my office. I had walked down to the lake and I found this bee going from flower to flower - it's amazing how little they care about human presence. I like to keep my distance when shooting bees, wasps, hornets, etc... and so I usually use my telephoto zoom; such was the case with this shot. I sold this image to an investment firm for use on the cover of one of their quarterly reports.
