Busy Bees and Butterflies too

I wandered out into the yard late this afternoon and the bees and butterflies were dancing everywhere, especially on my Asters.

There were all kinds of different bees, swarming all in one area.  It got so busy that the butterfly would swat away a bee, if it got on her flower!

This big guy had the most beautiful orange stripe!

Isn’t he just the cutest?  So fuzzy! And speaking of which, I am just amazed these pictures turned out as sharp as they did….all with a digital camera.  Thanks, Panasonic.

Did you notice, how I identified the bee as male and the butterfly as female?  I think the pretty one is the girl and the cute one is the guy but it’s always the opposite in nature, so I am sure that’s wrong! HA!


  1. Your pictures are just amazing. Now I know I gotta get a new camera. Poor butterfly looks like "she's" been through the wars.

  2. Your photographs are outstanding! Beautiful work~

  3. I haven't been a very good blogger recently..... sorry that I've missed some great pictures. You have some great photography.....
