Painting is just another way of keeping a diary ~Pablo Picasso

Friends of West Davis Pond has done such a nice job putting together a bee and butterfly garden just full of things blooming right now.  This bushy flowering plant was very popular with the bees.  Bees are so hard to photograph; they just move so fast!  I felt like I was playing a game a Whack-A-Mole, with my camera firing just after the bee departed the viewfinder, over and over again.  Luckily I had a few strikes too.  I thought this one was so funny.  For such a speedy little critter, he sure does have an awkward loafing sort of posture!  Cartoonish.

Their legs just hang there like landing gear! Bees are easier to photograph when it's cold. Here I would wait till late August or September, they are slower on the cold mornings. But, you've done well here, excellent!

This is amazing. Now I just have to get a camera with an adjustable lens. My Nikon is digital but I just cannot get the close in shots I want. You have such a great eye Melissa.
