Just some photos I took today. Scary stuff. I absolutely HATE bees. I've never been stung, but I used to be so afraid of bees that I would run around if one was buzzing around behind me. Anyway, it was interesting to watch these little guys. I used the 18-55 mm kit lense from my D50 to take the photos, and since I only had a 55mm focal length and not a 200 mm or something, I had to put the camera very very close to the bees to get these photos. I'm talking about within 10 cm (3.5 inches) or so. Since he was inside a flower getting sugar, I'm guessing he would have been stinging my ass until tomorrow if I interrupted him too much.
