Morning rounds

A bumblebee makes her early morning rounds.

Was stung by a honeybee for the first time in quite a while today while photographing near a hive. Got the stinger out fast, so there was almost no swelling. Can’t blame the bee, just an occupational hazard.

    Awww, so cute. Are these the ones that grow up to be big, black furry bees, flying kinda slow? They fascinate me.

    Yes, these are bigger than honey bees with black markings, Diane.
