Bee Butts

I like bee butts and I cannot lie.
You other bumbles can’t deny,
when a drone flies in with a itty-bitty waist,
and an abdomen in you face…
You get stung, pull that stinger out
‘Cause you noticed that butt was stuffed
Thick in the pollen its wearing,
I’m pricked and I can’t stop staring.
Oh bee, I wanna get wit’cha
And take your picture.
My honey bees tried to warn me,
that butt you got (its so thorny)

How the Honey is Made

More macro pictures of bees collecting pollen and nectar. I also found a wasps nest while out taking pictures, but I thought it was best to leave them alone. Taking these pictures often means getting within inches of the subject, the bees are too preoccupied to care, but the yellow jackets seemed a little more aggressive.

Bees at the Bus Stop

While I was waiting for the bus this morning I was entertained by a swarm of bees who were so interested in the flowers that they didn’t notice me taking pictures. I didn’t have any of my setup for shooting macro properly so I just had to get very close.
