Great shots, but I love the 1st one. Really makes you look twice.

With the bumble bee, I think when I photographed them I ended up with more bum's than bees.

Thanks Darren, You wouldn't know what kind of bee that is would you? I just happened to see him and was only able to get two shots off so it's not real good! Jim


Thanks Ian, I appreciate your nice comments! Jim

I went looking around the internetfor big black bees, and think you've found a type of carpenter bee (there are a number of different ones in the US). They look like the pictures of one or two varieties shown ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpenter_bee). I'm no expert - anyone else have ideas?

Those are really great shots Jim. The first two are my favorites, the composition of the first is just tops and the second pic is extremely sharp for an in motion shot. Thanks for sharing them.
