Heavy Backyard Air Traffic

The bees were working over the yellow bells (aka esperanza) in my father-in-law's backyard, and so I hauled out the camera on Saturday to try to capture some of the action. I was so focused (pun intended) on the bee leaving the bloom in the following photo that I didn't notice the one that's on approach to the landing area.

Is it just me or does the one facing the camera have a cartoonish look on his face?


Looks like the hornet the schools around here use for a mascot. Fighting mad!

I recognize one of them from A Bug's Life. ;-)

Oh he's hamming it up for the camera, all right.

Awesome photo!
