I would say so.

 
Thanks, Andy.
I'm still working bee flies, but thought I'd take a wasp/bee break today.

 
Nice
Nice shots. Did you get a new camera?

 
Good lighting and good luck.
All these were shot with the built-in flash of my Nikon D80. The bee was mostly inside the sage, rather than atop it, and I consider myself fortunate to get anything decent. The luck continued with a batch of Pepsis shots that I feared would come out horribly, but were actually quite nice.
