bzzzzz {137/365}

Normally, you won’t find me anywhere near one of these guys.  It’s amazing what happens to fear when you shove a camera in my hands…


Hey little buddy.  Don’t sting me please.  Thanks.

(that’s my crabapple tree … love!)

And I couldn’t resist posting this one …

137 alternate

Although it’s kind of a crappy shot, I had no clue their tongues (or whatever the heck that is) were so long!  Weirdness!

I had fun doing this.  It was pretty fascinating, actually.  I studied them for almost an hour, zooming in and snapping shots, and yes, fascinating is the word I’d use.

And I only ran twice ;)

EDIT FOR CP:  fuzzy noisy shot but look from the side!

137 bad shot for Cher :)

Weird, right?  Bizarre little guys.

    Dude, that second pic is SO freaking cool!!! I am deathly allergic to bees…like, throat close get me to the ER before I die allergic so that pic is, indeed, fascinating.

    Of course the title of the pic Bzzzzz got me curious.

    You know if that were the title of one of my blog posts, it would probably be about a sex toy! LMAO

    you’re so talented.

    OMG…that thing is CRAZY looking! I have to show this to my son! I have NEVER seen a bee that close up…cause I’m usually running in the opposite direction dialing 911! LOL

    Now I’m gonna have freaky bee dreams all night!

    Incredible pictures! I particularly love the second one but they are all awesome. I am scared to death of bees but for some reason I like bumblebees. I guess because of the name “bumble” and the fact that they are so fat and fuzzy looking. So cute, huh? LOL. I love his preparedness to gather nectar with that tongue(probiscus) already extended! Good shot!

    Bees scare the bee-jezus out of me. I hate them. I did take a few of a bumble bee last week. I miss not having a macro. it’s just not the same.

    Love the second one…even if I did look at it from under the table…
