    Tucking in. Don't suppose you get a lot of time to take this picture.
    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.

      Some times the Bees are very quick , so by the time you try and sort out the angels , they move on to the next flower .
      So its very much take the shot or miss out .. This particular one , I had time and if mem serves this was my 2nd shot .
      I took the first , thought it lacking and moved in for a slightly better 2nd shot . Most of the flowers are too high for me . 7 to 10 feet off the ground ..
      This flower would have been close to 6 feet off the ground ( maybe 5 and 3/4 ) I'm just a fraction over 6" ( 6.1 ) So the flower was about eye height .
      Very few bees hang around eye height , most are way up there ( mature mandarin tree ) Lemon tree is starting to flower as well , but most flowers are too high .

        You will have to get a box to stand on. I like the fact you can see the busy little bugger has pollen on him.
