Thank You! Thank You!
We have a few hives in the neighborhood and I have only a million or so pictures of bee blur to sort through just to find a few good ones Hilarious!
Plentiful feeding in these parts with all the fruit trees coming on now...

He might be a Carpenter Bee. We have them and they actually come to the door and look at me or follow me around when I'm outside. One just did that yesterday. Very friendly. Only the females sting and then only when they are threatened. The males just dive bomb what they perceive as threats. I suppose that usually does the trick.

Tee, do they follow you if you are wearing bright colours as hummers can do?

They seem to follow me no matter what. They are so curious.
