honey bees….lots of  ’em…


this was yesterday at lunch.  only one of my 20 creosote bushes is blossoming already.  scads of bees were working it over.



no dennis…those aren’t mini-tennis balls or a 3 foot bee. that is a creosote bud.


see that guy looking at me?  he’s like, “you knowwww.  me and my friends could kill you.”  but i kept going. snippity snap.

i just love the second photo of the bee flying. and see, you don’t need a macro…especially when the bee is 3 ft long. dennis, these may be the mutant x-ray bees. ha ha ha

I’m with Dennis on this, I don’t see a ruler either 🙂

it is an italian bee (ligustica) known to be the less aggressive bee in the world.

it may be that type of bee, but since 99% of the honeybees in Southern AZ are Africanized/hybrids, I wouldn’t take my chances. The Carl-Hayden bee lab usually measures the wings to determine if they are Africanized or not.
