Late for work?

This honey bee was a a big hurry. Maybe he was late for work, because he doesn't have any pollen on his legs. :0)

The wildflower is Field Mustard. I'm really happy to see it blooming, because it's an insect magnet.

Snakes know this, too. Last year I captured a green snake in some mustard. Yikes! I haven't seen a snake yet, but it was 81F here today. I'm sure they're awake.

Thank you for your kind responses to yesterday's pic of Wuzzy!!! :0)
oh wow I like the movement of the wings !

Very well done. Incredible movement in the wings but well focused on the flower and the bee 's eyes.

Nice blur on the winds, giving it a back and forth look as opposed to up and down. Once again, nice macro.

@webfoot Your comment had me thinking about how their wings work. I found this online. The honey bee has two sets of flat, thin, membranous wings, strengthened by various veins. The fore wings are much larger than the hind wings, but the two wings of each side work together in flight. Just flapping the wings does not result in flight. The driving force results from a propeller-like twist given to each wing during the upstroke and the downstroke.
