Bum shot

My second attempt to get a flying thingy from the front. First of all, I've learned that yesterday's UFO was actually a honey bee, not a wasp. I went back to the attractive little flowers in my garden this afternoon to stalk bees. Now, I'm not sure what THIS is... but this capture is the closest I got to a full frontal mid-flight shot.

Well, that was taken with 1/800th second and clearly wasn't fast enough to capture much of the wings.
...but this bee is actually the one I WANTED a shot of. But all I got was a bum shot.

Both these were taken with 1/1250th second and still you can barely see the wings, especially in the first one.

Not an easy task!
