This picture almost makes me speechless. It is magical and whimsical, yet those bees are doing very serious work.

oh this one is miraculous dumb luck born of *click*click*click*
Hilarious! no clue that lightning was caught in the bottle while scrolling thru all the miserably bad pics and then jaw dropping *gasp* of amazement!
Thank You!

Also one of my favorites! I love bees and I love sages; they clearly love each other and I Lovey dubby this photo!

I probably should have put it in bugs/birds, but I really see this as a coincidental great action shot of bees photobombing the salvia Hilarious!

(It's true--they are always intently focused on and dedicated to their very important business. Very difficult to get them to pose for my award winning fantasy shots)
