Went out this morning to photograph some nearby wild roses . . . I have a great dislike/fear of bumble bees but forced myself to stay in place long enough to get a few of this busy little one.

I guess I am not alone in my big fear of bumblebees. I think their "leader" tells them to chase me....you got a great image here, Marcie! Rare to get them in flight. Good job! #9492180

I am allergic to bees and hornets. I love bubble bees....they are not mean and aggressive as hornets. Plus we need them!! Glad you photographed them. :) #9493243

It's so much more interesting with a flying bee in the image. Now a story is being told.

Flowers without bees are lacking. Bees are necessary and are becoming endangered with the massive spraying of agrochemicals and genetically modified organisms altering the DNA of plants. #9494662
