Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

Bee - June 2013

Bee – June 2013

Another Photo Challenge featuring an insect! Capturing a bee at its work can be hard work in itself sometimes. When I have been quick enough to do this, more often than not it has been when the bee is taking its time over a particular flower. If I do catch them in flight, it is usually only as a retreating blur. This one looks as though it is waiting for me to take its picture and be done with so that she can carry on without me shadowing her.

This might seem like a strange thing for someone who takes a lot of pictures of flowers to admit, but I am one of those irritating people who scream and flap if a bee comes near me (sorry). My paranoia about being stung doesn’t stop me from liking them though – albeit from a safe distance. They remind me of proper summer days, and I realise now that their importance has been unappreciated, at least by me.

Just don’t get me started on wasps…
