Busy Bee!

Had no idea this bee was covered in pollen until I uploaded pic! He's a messy little guy. My lens was a little pollinated too! Thanks for all the great comments yesterday. Now that we all have our gripes out, should I tell you today is National Stress Awareness Day? Don't worry bee happy!!!
Wow, so amazing how this bee is covered in pollen. Great shot. BTW, thanks for sharing that today is National Stress Awareness Day; as a measure to fix it, I just came back from a well needed massage.

Not messy. An awsome shot. Fav. A bee would consider this as messy as a human covered with 100$ bills. Great capture.

Wow, what a great capture of this bee with all that pollen, Catherine. Amazing what one sees on our computers when we load our photos. FAV

We found a bee on our deck and it couldn't fly it had so much pollen! Then it took off, obviously shook itself and all this pollen flew off him! "Dump excess fuel"

great one.....you took this fine shot very carefully to show the busy bee...

amazing macro! so much detail in the pollen!

@wannabe I just noticed its wings sticking up. Your detail of this photo is so awesome, Catherine. If you are allergic to Pollen you would know via this bee and where it is at. My cousin took an awesome photo of a flower and realized that it has tons of pollen, hence the horrible sinus issues so many are suffering with including her and her daughter. Maybe we were not meant to see all the detail but gives us a lot of info in these photos alone that we would have never seen before.

Fabulous detail - love it! Congrats on the pp too!
posted April 18th, 2012  
Congrats on making PP, Catherine. Your bee and my two ducks are on it together. I hope you know how to view the photos on there. If not, go to browse at the top of this photo and click on Popular and a collage of photos will pop up. Keep clicking on the button till you see yours as it will resize it. My black duck got its head chopped off on all photos but if you put your mouse on your photo you can see your entire photo. Some people take a photo of the page to keep. A couple of people that follow me told me and took photos of the PP page with my ducks on it. So nice. Enjoy!!

@vickisfotos Vicki, the flowers are hanging over my fence from my neighbors yard. I just asked her the name today and told her how much I have been enjoying them! She said it is called Ligustrium. Hopefully I spelled that right but they are covered in bees and butterflies!
