Your camera is almost as impressive as the bee's wings! I wish I could take pictures like that with my camera.

Claire, these photos are stunning!! At this point, my words would not do your photos the justice they deserve, so I will just go to bed :o)

enlarged, and on closer inspection, their wings look for all the world like moving water.
