Slacker Bee

I guess sometimes even the Bee has to take a break. Working all day, gettin’ paid next to nothing, never getting their fair share of the honey, having to put up with getting hassled by the WASPs. Every once in a while a Bee just has to take a little bee time and sit back and tap a little grass.

Technical Stuff: I spent about thirty minutes in this little patch of blue flowers chasing honey bees… but those bastards won’t stay still long enough for my pocket digital to focus, so I got some great shots of a ladybug and this bumblebee. Yeah, I’m now taking photos of insects and flowers. Don’t worry though, I’m taking my lithium everyday.

This poor bastard of a bee is dying. I originally found him/her stumbling along the ground, so I tapped his/her ass and he/she walked up these stalks of grass. He/she flew away after a few moments. He/she hasn’t called back but I think he/she said something about a sick queen… nah, I didn’t tap its ass, I tapped ON its ass. Grow up.
