SITY: Bumblebee Buzz

My daily trip outside to view the violets is not just about the flowers. It’s about the whole experience: sun on my face, birds chirping, walking barefoot in the grass, etc. One of my favorite things to do while I’m out there is to watch the bumblebees feeding on the violets. The bees are so large that they knock the flowers over. It’s just the funniest thing.

Here, let me show you.

Here's a bumblebee on approach. Bzzzzzz.

Look at how the violet stem is bent.

Bee Butt!

This bumblebee seems not to care that he has pulled the flower all the way over and that he's lying on a leaf. He reminds me of my cat, Mojo, when he's totally engrossed by a toy.

Bumblebee Close-Up

Bumblebee taking off or landing, not sure which, but it's a cool picture.

BTW, in case you were wondering . . . yes, I took these shots close up, which required not just determination, but also a great deal of stupidity.
