LOOK! a BIG BEE... get closer even if you are scared of Bees
and so I did... you may have to bigify the photos to see the bee

 Q: What did the confused bee say?
A: To bee or not to bee!
 Q: What do bees do if they want to use public transport?
A: Wait at a buzz stop!

Q: What is the bees favorite film?
A: The Sting!
this is my favorite, wish he were a little clearer, he looks like a mini helicopter

 Q: What's a bee-line?
A: The shortest distance between two buzz-stops!

Q: What is a baby bee?
A: A little humbug!

You got some really good shots of the that bee. I can often be found chasing bugs around my back yard in an attempt to get their picture. Most are not very cooperative...lol

You were bee-brave to get those pictures. Have you ever been stung by one? Ouch.

You're lucky to have bees in your garden - they are quite necessary you know.

Great pics and glad you had a zoom in camera.

Superb clarity in your pictures... Your bees don't look like our bees (ours are striped and kind of furry)

Hi Sandra, Those are neat pictures of the bees... I read recently that bees are not as plentiful these days due to ---are you ready for this???? CELLPHONES. (something about the electro-magnetic waves which cellphones carry)... Unbelievable isn't it????

Well, I am very impressed that you got that close. Great shots.

Your bee reminds me a lot of the Blue Orchard Bees that I see here sometimes, they like all the apple orchards in our area. I don't know if they live that far south but if that is an Orchard Bee you could have gotten even closer. They are very shy bees, pretty much the only way to get stung by one is to grab it. They are also solitary and don't swarm.
