Dasypoda hirtipes Fabricius, 1793
Hymenoptera: Melittidae

Dasypoda hirtipes is a mining bee, very good pollinator mainly of plants of Family Asteraceae. The females have unmistakable large orange brown hairbrushes at the hindlegs. With these brushes the females collect pollen from yellow Asteraceae. The females are nesting in, sometimes large, nest aggregations. Each female has her own burrow, and the sand from excavation is left as a wall around the entrance of the burrow.(Wikipedia)

Hi Nikos,i like a lot the point of view to show us the profil of this bee,the sharpness is a bit soft but the colors are very very bright,springtime is coming..have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Nikos,
Perfect background for such tiny Bee. I like your composition the way you have given bit space in front of the bee. Details could have been little bit better, but not bad. Well exposure.
Thanks for sharing your work with us
Regards and have a nice weekend,
