Under attack!

A bumblebee with mites on its back. Bumblebees are frequently attacked by mites at the end of the summer and the attackers can be so numerous that the bumblebee will no longer be able to fly. Although it is quite common it is not often seen in real life as the mites are small and the bumblebees are constantly moving. However, on a photo it is easier to see. This is a focus stacking of 38 photos
