Two or three weeks ago I put a photo into the Macro Mondays group that I called ‘Staying Alive’ where I used this 50 pence coin in a different composition. Well after I’d finished shooting that image I was about to clear up the patio table where I’d taken that shot when I noticed this bee on the ground. And you’ll know what I mean when I say that you sometimes see bees on the ground that are very sluggish and almost unresponsive. This was one such bee. The gears started to whirl in my brain and I thought – Why not! So I gathered it up on a piece of cardboard and gently nudged it onto my coin and took a couple of quick shots. I then put him gently back onto the ground and let him bee…

So before anyone reports me, no bees were harmed in the making of this image!
