Buzz, Buzz, Buzz

Okay, does the sound of a buzzing bee distract you from the fact that I have absolutely no knitting to show you?! LOL In fact, my migraine is lingering and I have no desire to knit at you know that is bad! However, my Grandma Doris did receive her peacock feathers shawl yesterday and likes it, so that made me happy.

My Mother's Day gift was to have a day to myself yesterday and I really needed it. I'll be posting a couple more pics probably because I saw Swallowtail Butterflies, but I wanted to be sure and get this up for my best friend Shelley to see. This is cropped out of a larger photo and enlarged so you can see the antennas. Can you see how they curl, just like we draw them when we are kids or in cute kids' art? I thought that was just artistic license; I did not know that some insect antenna indeed curls like that. The bee was moving really fast so it is not totally in focus, but I thought it was also neat how you can see the outline of the wing. I get so excited when God gives me things like this to photograph, I just couldn't keep it to myself, so I had to share.

Very cool capture.

A lovely image of... not a bee but a hummingbird moth :) The curly thing is its probiscus, for drinking nectar, and not the antennae, which are just above it, with clubbed.
