Bee On Coneflower

Little Bee On Coneflower

The coneflower is a gathering place for critters of wings. I had butterflies, bees, hornets, and wasps. This little bee preferred to feed on this one cone in particular.

Another View

He/she was really deep in concentration and didn't mind my camera sticking very close to it. Under the afternoon sun, I can see its fuzzy wuzzy hairy thing too.

Dive Down
It moves this way, that way, and dives deep down inside the cone, exposing a pair of sparkling wings. I do worry about getting stung by it, so I keep my distant and make the photo session short.

These are really great close up shots of the Bee! Not sure If I could brave getting this close to a Bee. Nicely done.

These are great captures! I'm glad the bee was so busy s/he didn't notice you.

oh, so beautiful shots, Icy, these little critters indeed give us joy when we see them and they teach us to always focus in what we do, for even with our presence, they keep on working :)
