04.14.2012: Taking snaps in bee territory

    Newer Older

    I spent over 30 minutes in a patch of lavender taking snaps of all the bees. One of my favorites from the bunch... I often come into close contact with these buzzers but luckily, I have never been stung (knock on wood). ;)

      What an amazing shot....in flight detail no less.
      I can't believe you have never been stung. I get stung at least four times a year cycling.

      the way he's hovering is fantastic Jay - and I noticed (even before Neil mentioned it) that you've got a new toy. Good on you - deeply jealous :-) Can't say I get stung often, but I do swallow insects running.

      excellent - I really haven't got the patience, but looking at this I should give it a go!
