The Nature of Life

Nope, this is not an alien bee with four wings, but rather bees doing what nature has intended! Landing in front of my camera, this couple has no care for my present!

It was a busy time for these tiny little bees, and they were everywhere in their intimate moment. I'm an intruder, but it was not my intention as I was minding my own business of photographing the yellow mustard flowers.

It is the nature of life, and the bees wanted me to know so! They gave me permission and an experience to sharpen my skill of taking the photos.

They look just like one bee, especially in that first picture.

Great shots. I like the shade of yellow.

Superb macros! The bees didn't even mind your intrusion during their intimate moments, it seems!

Great photos, but I have to break something to you . . . these aren't bees! Bees have 4 wings. These are flies, which only have 2 wings. In fact, the order of flies is called Diptera (meaning "2 wings") since it is a unique characteristic of flies. So, a normal bee would have fours wings, a mutant bee would only have 2 wings, and bees mating like this would appear to have eight wings.
