Macro Monday....Bee-u-tifly

The little man and I sat in the yard the other day and watched the bumblebees make a meal of my phlox.  This one kept coming back and visiting to see what we were up to.  Don't think he was too happy to share his meal.....

bees are hard and I find butterflys even harder to capture, you did great! :)

All these are nice, but I love the second one, with the bee's wings caught in mid-flight. That's an incredible picture!

Great action shots of the bee!
I was taking photos of bees visiting my peach tree yesterday, too. We don't have those cute fat bumblebees, though.

Love the butterfly shot. Gorgeous!
