Default Mistaken identity.....

I'm wondering if maybe this bee thinks it's upon a mini honeycomb?





And a few more weeds in my yard!




And....looking up at the weeds




And right under this one, is where Bajadir sunbaths after he rides the bus home from work

I see only a single pair of wings on that "bee," And no pollen sacs. I suspect that it is one of the many dipteran bee mimics. Mistaken identity? Maybe so.

#1 is really a neat shot actually, yet, as Barbarian put above obviously seen in the wings, a 'mistaken identity' there, regrettably, by the photographer rather than the critter which poses on the capitulum of the daisy quite resembling a honey comb! However, not a chance for the polyandrous queen bee around, for fake love doesn't sell Btw, don't be fooled by Bahadir's sun tan also, since he invariably prefers spearfishing to passive sunbathing ; )

Really, do you free dive or scuba? I'd love to see some underwater and game shots!

Here, since that picture didn't get your goat....does this one bug you

Nice shots, but in the last one is that bee going in for the kill?

I'd like to but the barbarian in me is telling that this would ruin the abundance of the game! As for your additional picture; have you heard the story of a fly who would like to be a bee?
