A bee decided to land on my car after I washed it. So I decided to take out my camera. :D

Thank you both for your comments. :)

In #2, looks like the little guy was giving me a slight head twist/attitude glare. Looks that way to me at least. :lol:

Should have been here about 15 minutes ago

had a persistant fella that would NOT leave me alone in my shop, I would catch him and put him outside, and he kept coming back in to bug me


Im so afraid of bees and wasps... its unbelievable i had enough nerve to catch and release

And I did it because of the bee shortages :o

Well, the bee community salutes you for your efforts. Perhaps I'm in the minority when it comes to bees. My dad saw what I was doing and he was quite nervous and kept his distance while there I was, sticking my 100/macro lens at minimum focal distance and circling the little fellow looking for the best angle. :D

Maybe I missed my calling. I should've opened a bee farm.
