The Bees Knees

The Bees Knees, originally uploaded by Chez VH.

I read Lissa's post about the 100 Species Challenge and thought it sounded interesting, but knew I didn't usually manage to get around to such things and left it alone... until I started chasing bees around in our back garden yesterday with a camera. It was fascinating to see their pollen sacs on their legs filled up (and brightly colored!) and I just had to get a few shots.

Then I realized how much fun it would be to try to capture some more plants on film - and I was hooked. :)

Blame it on the bee.

Ah yes, and by the way, it's a cone flower that the bee is so interested in.

Wow, awesome shot! It's so cool to see the full pollen sacs on his legs!
