Busy Bumblebee

Photo from 13 April, 2010. (The flowers are crocuses.)

I LOVE IT!! It seems everyone can get a good picture of a bumblebee but me. I'm still trying. Guess I'm afraid of being stung. We have been plagued by hundreds of huge ones this year. Their drones sound like a loud engine and they are the size of cars!! They even come and slam against out large picture window!

first I want to say YIKES! that is one BIG Bumble Bee. then I say I agree with ginny, i have never gotten a really good shot of one. i think it is caused by the fact I am so fearful of them, I can't focus the camera on them without shaking. yours is wonderful.

So far in my experience I've found bumblebees quite peaceful. They keep to the flowers and are not interested in humans - or our food. Wasps on the other hand are greedy, competitive and curious, and make me freak out! (I was stung a couple of times as a child.)

Dawn Treader...I have to disagree on this one...I have had bumblebees chase me on multiple occasions...they freak me out..but not as much as spiders!

Maybe American bumblebees are more aggressive than ours...? I really have no idea, I might just have been lucky.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
