Busy as a Bee

Hey there Peoples!!  It would appear that the three digit summer temperatures have finally hit our neck of the woods.  While taking the pooch out for a quick morning game of catch, I happened to notice that the bees were busy gathering pollen before the temperatures rose above tolerable levels.  I grabbed my camera and snapped off a few photos before retreating back inside.




  Notice the pollen sack on this photo! 



Let me just say that taking such close up pictures of bees is a bit unnerving, LOL!  I only let loose a couple of panicked squeals in the process of taking these photos!I found it very fascinating to watch them work.  They move around in a complete circle, clockwise then counterclockwise, to gather the pollen.  I love the photo I caught of the pollen sack and the detail on the wings.  

Baby steps in figuring out this photography genre!!  

I'm thinking that I need to change the format of my blog to better showcase photos.  Any suggestions as to what format are welcome!!

That's about it for me today.  I have a house full of neglected chores from a week of working the paying job last week!! Need to get busy like my little bee friends!

'Till next time............

Your photography skills are awesome! Mine leave so much to be desired. I can barely take a picture of the cards I make, let alone go outside and check out nature. Well done girl. Try and stay cool!
