12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A bee distributing pollen
I went to a local forest preserve with my camera and zoom lens in order to capture images that aren't always visible to the human eye. As you can see in this picture, the eyes, antennas, arms and even the fur of the bee is visible. We sometimes think of bees as an annoying buzzing creature, but in reality there's so much more to the insect.
