While recently visiting my wife’s sister’s house near Minneapolis, there was a frenzy of activity of bumblebees around a lot of her garden flowers. You know what happened then … out came my macro lens!
Here are a few images of the bees as they feverishly mobbed the flowers. One little bee (on a pink cleome):
Two little bees (on a pink zinnia):
Hey, let’s have a party … 3 little bees (on same pink zinnia):
I stopped there … any more bees and I would have had to change from a macro lens to a wide angle lens! :o)
