I was photographing small insects when I saw this bee land. Unfortunately, it chose rather unsightly blue plastic to land on so I have toned that down a bit.

It is Megachile centuncularis

The stereo is crosseye. I shot two pairs but one from each pair gave the best result.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/160 at f11 ISO 800, hand-held.
