Bees in the rain

This is at an outbuilding at a friend's place.  The bees - we call these yellow jackets - have built their nest right up against the glass, and it was raining so they all huddled round the back.  I was safe and dry inside and could not resist taking their portrait.

  1. I would have done the same Buck, great photo and yet quite 'icky' at the same time, all those squirmy bee bodies!!

  2. Bees are funny that way... we think of them favourable as industrious and yet they still evoke a primal fear. Amazing creatures in many ways.


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
