An Inquisitive Bee

I am finding bees increasingly interesting and they make great subjects for photography. I am grateful for my 105mm lens and 24mm extension tube that get me optically close to, but not too physically close to the bees. I was watching this bee and taking several shots as it walked along the stamen, quite the delicate walk at a furious pace. I was using a flash and I am used to the flash frightening off a few insects, but never bees. So I was taken aback when the bee stopped and looked directly at me.
