THE BUMBLE BEE


I was taking a stroll around my garden on one of the recent warm and sunny days we have been having. I had my camera with me as I wanted to take a few pictures of the flowers that were blooming. I am not very good with names of flowers so I am afraid I can't tell you what this one is called. Anyway it is a very large bush in the garden and it flowers in May but the flowers don't last long. I had got a few shots of the flowers when I noticed the bees buzzing around. I managed to get up to this one and get a few shots of it. I love my camera for the close-up shots I can get.
Anyway I put this picture onto Flickr and I got an email from someone asking if they could use my picture as they were working on a story about bee research at York University.

Wonderful photo of the bee. It's amazing how many varieties there are. I hope that you will continue with your blog when you have moved or I and many others will miss it!

Great picture! Unfortunately we don't have such beautiful flowers here. Just cats who show off everything which needs to get blanked out :-)

Hi Lizzy! It's a great photo! Super "pro-nature"... By the way, i saw you with an entrecard, how can I make use of it? i registered last night but I cannot still get the hold of its concept...or i just have connection problems.. i have read all actually but still i have not discovered how to "DROP"... three people have already their cards "dropped" in my inbox and i want to return the favor... how can I do it, should i do it in their blogsite or where can I drop it.

Thanks in advance for the help. I just saw you have the entrecard... SOrry...
