Honeybee by cedrus Honeybee by cedrus
Western Honey bee. (Apis Mellifera)
Apis ~ abeille and Melli ~ miel (cool, yeah?)

I shot this in Annaya, Lebanon, so this could be one of 3 subspecies that populate the middle east: (Syriaca, Meda, or Anatolica).

It's most likely the 'Syriaca', but if any bee expert knows better, it's always good to know.

Cheers!

Well I did edit it. I shot it in RAW format, so I increased the contrast, adjusted the levels, sharpened it, then cropped it for the final result. (digital darkroom, no?)
