Even bees are addicted to coke, Don! Great find and capture, my dear friend! I really love the colors and details on this little guy! However I would never dare to get this Keep up the great work, my friend! I'm sure you still have many goods shots in your collection. C'mon dig them out and let us enjoy! #191869

Thanks Sanjay, but I think we both know that my shots aren't very good as evidenced by their lack of comments and results of BP judging. 2 runner-ups in 4 months isn't exactly what you would call a stellar performance! #940324

Thanks a lot, Wally, C.J., Cathy, Janet, Len, Murry, Izzy and Dan!

Janet, funny that you should mention this since a few years back I actually got stung inside the mouth by a regular bee that had gotten inside a can of Mountain Dew that I was drinking. Fortunately, he only stung me 1 time and I was about to spit him out before swallowing! So, as you can imagine, I also always look inside before drinking now too! #941432
