The Spring Bee

Here is an insect we all want to see to make sure we have a colorful Spring with as many blossoming flowers as possible. 

As you can see, he was posing for this photo and then he smiled for the camera.  

Taking photos of bees is never easy and you do not want to get stung!

Fabulous shot, Julie. I enlarged this to get a closer view of the wings. They are simply awesome.

Stunning shot Julie! He looks like he's sitting on cotton balls!

Indeed a very successful shot, which provides a sweet taste of spring - thank you.

I am surprised that you were able to take this photo. Usually you are a bee magnet. I guess this bee was too content to be concentrating on the flower and did not notice that you were around and available to buzz and torment.

Just bee nice to him...

That is a terrific shot...as you say, it's hard to get a good bee photo. I tried for an hour the other day, chasing a bee around a bush and never did get a keeper.

Yes, spring has come. Even running a bee flowers. People should be happy. Greetings.

Great shot Julie. I can see him smiling.

Great shot, we can see the smile!

He looks like a very happy bee. And what a beautiful flower for him to land on.

Happy Easter! I think I took probably 100 photos of bees last year, and not one shot was clear!

I tried to take a pic of bee at the park today. The bee seemed to be interested when I showed it my glass full of soda, yet refused to be photograph :). How did you manage to capture such a wonderful photo?

Sorry, seeing this picture I couldn't resist a little Shakespeare.

Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip's bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat's back I do fly
After summer merrily:
Merrily, merrily, shall I live now,
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
