Bee on flower by alanbecker Bee on flower by alanbecker
Once again, a watercolor done last year.
I got lucky with the photo for this painting, the focus turned out perfect and the focal point was offset making it more... compositional... it was good considering I had a pretty bad (but ok) camera.

I'm not even sure this is a bee. It might be one of those flies that look like bees but aren't.

The punch of the submariner is a plan of art and conceivably one of the a lot of affected styles in Replica Chanel Watches history, the Mercedes appearance easily are a classic. The clear is Sapphire. The absolute bind is I can't absolutely absolve accepting two agnate Subs and the way I see it it's one or the other.

It's not a bee, or a wasp, its called a hover fly :D
they're completely harmless, they only look like wasps so that other animals wont eat them.
And i think bees are cool! :iconlaplz:

It's not a bee, I tthink it might bee a kind of large wasp, very large wasps like this size can't sting.

It's a hoverfly. I personally find them cuter than bees. [link]

I think it's one of the pretend bees but I do like the painting. I found water colour hard as I couldn't get the details in I wanted but I guess that's the point with watercolour although you do see some with a lot of detail. Also I tended to get the paper too wet or is started to go rough. Anyway, this came out nicely and I like the composition and the colours.

You mean a hoverfly? I think you're right, the eyes are reddish. And it looks like the one in the Wikipedia article.
