Bees are a common subject but there are a couple of reasons for this photo, so please indulge us for just a moment. Yeah, we recently got a macro lens and if you shoot flowers at all, well, bees are almost unavoidable. Summer's coming to an end here in Durham, North Carolina, so we're trying to catch the last of the summer flowers. Also, our 6 year old grandson wrote at school this week that he wanted to be a bee remover. Reminded me of the honey bees my uncle used to keep on his farm. Been hearing reports of our bees disappearing due to pollution, pesticides, and so on. A disturbing thought. Amazing creatures they are.
