They look like JETS refueling to ME but WHAT DO I KNOW?

Maybe I'd better back away slowly and RUN OFF B4 I find out! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

This is actually a very well done macro, Tess. Great job.

Prowling around the office flower bed in search of a water droplet shot, and happened upon these kids having a grand ol' time. So I shot'em.
