I got some shots of bees while at the park yesterday. Many of the bees were still wet from the rain.
The bees didn’t seem to mind being wet. This one was wet and still sleeping on the petal of this flower with its legs thrown over the side.
I also found a few new spots for bees, with different flowers.
Not all of the bees were wet. Some were busy eating and had dried off, probably from flying around.
These flowers are very pretty, but incredibly difficult to photograph the bees, as they only stay on the flower for a split second before moving. But how they get the nectar is so interesting to watch. They stick their whole head inside the flower. It all happens in just a moment. They’re in, out, and off to another in the blink of an eye.
I’m really off to the beach today, leaving in a few minutes. I’m going to miss the bees, but I’m looking forward to what I might find in the sand or plants.
