The Bees are Working Hard
Journey at Home Day 71
The patio in front of our entrance is full of creeping thyme, which flowers at this time of year. Native bees love it, and I love hearing their buzzing. The bees really don't care how close I get, because they are on a mission to collect pollen. I took the second photo with a regular lens. Then I spent a long time on the ground with my macro lens trying to capture the bees at work. The first image is a close up of one of them. It looks as if he is coming at me, but he is perched on a flower. Bees are pretty mellow. It's wasps and hornets who will both sting and take a bite out of you.
