This week I have had my camera out and ready to use. We are still in OH with all the cousins. So you never know when one of them might be doing something worthy of a "Kodak moment"<----I still say that, even though I haven't used film in years.
Anyhow, we were all outside after dinner. Since it is still getting dark so late, I try to wear them out with a little sunshine in the evening. The kids were playing semi-nicely when I noticed a bee dive bombing me. Or I thought it was dive bombing me at least. I was standing by the pond where this big flowering bush? tree? is. This bee was the fattest little thing I have ever seen. I seriously wondered how it could even get off the ground with his little rotund body, But he would fly from flower to flower, go deep inside the petals, and go on about his business. Since I am severely allergic to bees, I kept my distance and used the zoom. Then I realized he wasn't really dive bombing me, he was just busy trying to collect as much pollen as he could. Where do they put it anyway? I'll have to ask Claudia, she's a bee keeper. I would train the lens on the flower he would bury himself.......as soon as he emerged I would take the pic. This was was my favorite, even though I ran screaming like a little girl. When I looked in the viewfinder, he looked like something from one of those freaking bee movies from way back when!
