Happily Ever After

The Honey Bee, left on its own once more, curled right up and went on snacking and enjoying its lunch, giving no more thought to what had just happened. It forgot all about that big Bumble Bee that flew into its dining area. It didn't care if the Bumble Bee had even found another flower to dine on. The Honey Bee was happy as a Honey Bee could be in the pollen. It was enjoying the flower once again. The Honey Bee lived happily ever after, as did the Bumble Bee since the Honey Bee decided to just kick it out instead of doing something worse. The End. (To get back to the first photo, go to the primary Album 6: http://365project.org/prttblues/365-year-6/2015-06-30 )

Photographer's note: I truly am fatally allergic to these flying insects. If I continue to see bees and photograph them, I really have to get an Epi-pen from the doctor. I am still in awe that I captured such a scene on camera. I saw it taking place with my eye that was open and as I had the shutter button held down so it was taking continuous shots, I wasn't sure if I captured it or if I did that any of them would come out. I am quite surprised that I captured the entire ordeal! And I am so glad that neither bee saw me!!
Wonderful capture, Bev.

I think this one is the best shot of all- love all the detail on the bee and the flower's stem. Great sequence Bev!

@henrir Thanks, Henri :)

@jackies365 Thanks, Jackie :) I'll call the doc tomorrow.

@olivetreeann Thanks, Ann :) I like this one too because of your same reason - the detail of the stem and the bee. I couldn't just post one photo without posting the other 4. There was an entire story that unfolded before my very eye and my lens! I had to share it!

@alia_801 Thanks, Alia :) It was interesting to watch. You'd think via the pictures that it was a drawn out encounter when it was only mere seconds!
