On the Wing

Catching a bee in flight isn't so difficult. I just thought there was an interesting look to the reflections on the left wing. Almost as though the wing was spinning to some degree.

The hummer wings do spin to some degree. I understand they rotate the wing plane so they get lift from both the forward and backward stroke, and that is how they can hover. I would guess the same must be true for the bee.
