    Wonderful

  4. Isha Garg says:

    Wow, your photography skills are second to none, Eliza! 💕

  5. Alice says:

    …and I’m looking up ‘Dewy Bee’ & not finding info on it ….new kind of bee for me…🤭😳🤣 Got it now!

  6. John says:

    Amazing, I never saw wings like this, a great photo Eliza!

  7. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Such a sweet photo Eliza! 💛

  8. sandyjwhite says:

    Great detail on this, Eliza!

    This could be used for an ad for some skin beauty product.

  10. David says:

    Nice shot, but I was a bit confused by the title and expecting Romper Room’s Do-Bee. 🙂

  11. Treah Pichette says:

    Wow….how beautiful! Great capture.

  12. Lol, I looked like that on Monday after several sudden downpours while at work! Certainly I was too heavy to fly. 😉
    Great capture of an unusual aspect of a bee’s life.

  13. Irene says:

    Nice one, Eliza. 😊

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Irene! Too bad I didn’t have one of your nice macro lenses, but this will have to do. 😉

      • Irene says:

        You did great with what you had and that is the true test. I have had many more awful results with my macro lens due to my own errors. Yet, many people capture gorgeous images with their phones and I can’t seem to hold my phone steady enough to take a sharp pic. Go figure! 😂

  14. Hmmm…you must have got up rather early for this, Eliza. 🙂 I bet that bee, and the rest of us, could use a little refreshing rain in all this heat.

  15. spanishwoods says:

    Wow, this is just amazing Eliza! So very very wonderful.

  16. bittster says:

    Beautiful photo, she seems refreshed by the dew!

  17. Kris P says:

    She needs to find a nice flower to sleep in next time!

  18. Anne says:

    One doesn’t often find a bee napping!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It must be our cooler temps because I see bees napping on flowers quite often. Do you know honeybees only live about 5 days and produce a teaspoon of honey in that time? I consume a bee’s lifework with every cup of tea I drink… definitely gives me pause, with gratitude and appreciation.

      • Anne says:

        That is a sobering thought!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Oops, my error, bees live 5-6 weeks during active months and 5-6 months during winter. And I just checked my other ‘fact’ (where did I ever get those first figures is beyond me) and it is even less honey per bee. 1/12 tsp. over 6 weeks. Oh, dear, I feel like a squandering overlord!

  19. Maria says:

    Beautiful details!

  20. pbmgarden says:

    Beautiful composition. I’m not seeing many bees lately.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Susie. That news makes me sad. Collectively, we really have to change the chemical paradigm that plagues our modern world. Folks have to recognize that we are all connected to the great web of life. Matt.25:40 comes to mind: ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

  21. How heavy those little dew drops must have been on her wings! Beautiful picture, Eliza!

  22. Robin says:

    Bee-utiful capture, Eliza. ❤

  23. Very nice Eliza! Enjoyed seeing your image!

  24. Lovely–feels so intimate.

  25. rajkkhoja says:

    Very nice bea. I like photo

  26. Jet Eliot says:

    I can honestly say, of all the wildlife encounters I have had over the years, I have never ever seen a dewy bee. This is capture is so great, Eliza.

  27. Ally Bean says:

    I like this photo. I’m smiling here. The dewy bee is quite a good model!

  28. gwenniesgardenworld says:

    Great capture !

  29. naturebackin says:

    What an unusual sighting. Glad to read that the bee survived to fly another day!

  30. Do, do, do what the dew, dew, dew did do.
