I had an encounter with some little friends the other day while photographing the crocuses. This one is a yellow-faced bumble bee, and was busy, busy, busy. She was mostly moving too fast for my macro, which has a very short depth of field. But I got a couple of decent pictures.
Doesn’t she look pettable?
And here’s a hint of what’s to come when I finish getting the photos together: Bombus melanopygus was a lot slower, and I took a LOT of pictures of her.
