Default Bird and Bee

These are terrible photos, taken through my kitchen window, but it was an interesting sequence of events.

Humming bird at the feeder: it's tiny and it looks like focus lock was on the railing instead of the bird.


The turf war starts:






The wasp prevailed.

I haven't posted much lately, I apologize for not commenting on the great stuff that's been posted lately -
I retired in June and have been really busy. I'm finding it tough - in retirement you never get a day off.

God bless all.
Jim

Great shots Jim!

I wouldn't worry about the focus, gives them an action shot sort of feel, the third and fourth are brilliant!

Indeed a great story, and very well told. The last two are especially dramatic shots!

Neat shots - amazing that the wasp prevailed, I sure wouldn't have guessed that.

Wait a minute - I thought retirement meant lots of spare time, being bored and sitting around waiting for the retirement check to arrive. Not? In that case, retirement doesn't look as nice as I always thought.

LOL, Jim, the story it tells is fantastic. not something you see everyday either.

As for retirement goes... My dad worked the same job for over 40 years then retired to the mountains near Yosemite National Park. He said he never worked so hard in his life till he retired!
