Some bees that @dirtdorphins and I shot in our garden and up in the foothills of the rockies. We made a calendar last year instead of sending Christmas cards. Thought it appropriate to post the beauty of these critters here:

Well that's a bee, see all the hairs and pollen collected? it's got a striped abdomen though and the other one doesn't, so they are different little ones...there are literally thousands of different little ones
