Flight of the Bee


Talk about “beeing” in the right place at the right time! Or at least snapping the camera at the right time! This bee was in mid-flight when I snapped this image as he heads towards some flowers to gather pollen.

I just wanted a nice photo of him actually gathering the pollen, and was pleasantly surprised with this image when reviewing them! You can’t even see his wings as they were moving so fast.

2012 Photo Challenge – Ants on Peonies

Instead of one photo today, I thought I would share twelve. They are of Ants on Peonies. I know that I have had ants before in the Photo Challenge, but I couldn’t resist. They are so interesting… from a photographers perspective. Other than that, I really don’t like them!
