Rodney, You must bee a charmer to get those guys to sit still long enough for their photos to be shot. I like the last pic. That one seems more like the ones that have stung me. I don't mind the stings, for they soon subside, but the poor little guys just go off and die. Seems unjust somehow. Life is not fair for bees either.

Rodney - those bees sure are enjoying that clover! And I sure am enjoying your clear, detailed photos!
They look just like our North American honeybees, and North American white clover - are they just some related species?
