More signs of Spring!!! The honey bees are working hard right now. I walked by one of our Bradford Pears and the whole tree was buzzing - litterly buzzing with the noise of these busy little guys at their work. I ran into the house and grabbed the camera, put the macro lens on and snapped a LOT of bee photos. This is my favorite, I hope you enjoy it too. I particularly liked all the details: the iridescent sheen of the wings, the tiny hairs on the body of the bee and the finer points of the flowers are my favorite features of this photo.
Best viewed in larger sizes.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments on the car shot today. I am so sorry I'm traveling & having long days and late nights so I'm not commenting much. But I'll catch up soon.
Have a BEE-U-T-FUL day!
Yeeee - ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This guy's sting is powerful. Caught him on the hummingbird feeder. This Texas Yellow Jacket is fierce and scary. Glad I got his shot before he saw me.
Hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A beautiful pair of ducks lazily swimming in a Missouri river near Spencer Missouri. It was a lovely river and a beautiful area, particularly in the fall of 2010.
