Bee visiting Eucalyptus macrocarpa


I noticed that bees were visiting the huge Eucalyptus macrocarpa flowers, so I composed the shot and waited patiently for that perfect moment when one bee hovered in just the right place. It is interesting to know that these small bees can pollinate such a large flower.
