Hard Work Pays, by Abhijit Bhowmick

This photo was shot in Chicago’s botanical garden, where this yellow honey bee was sucking nectar from a flower while in motion. It took me few minutes to get hold of a close position, so that the bee was not frightened of me. The hard work that is displayed by the bee, finally pays off and reminds me of the inevitable truth “Fruit of hard work is always sweet”

    The Shallow DoF adds a calming effect to the image. Lovely shot considering it’s coming from a P&S!
