HoneybeesPosted: September 23, 2012
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the honeybees were out in force at the Botanical Gardens. Although I used to be terrified of them, I’ve since realized as an adult that if you leave a honeybee alone, she will leave you alone. I’m very careful about getting up close to them with my macro lens, but for the most part, they are so intent on pollinating the flower at hand, that they totally ignore me. (Which is just fine with me.) I hope you enjoy the selection of photos below, and if you get a chance you should read up on honeybees! They are quite interesting.
