I think I have a new obsession--bug bottom photography. But how can I possibly resist when presented with the opportunity to capture two bumble butts together?
And here we have two bumbilicious beauties trying to hide their bottoms;
And again, two proudly displaying them;
And then, would you believe...there were three;
I did try to get a picture of four in one shot, but I was pushing my luck there, so let's just admire those three bees again;
The globe artichokes are very popular with the bumble crowd right now. Things have even been getting a bit competitive. Steady on, bumbles, there's plenty for everyone;
And there's still room for some alone time;
To focus on the task at hand;
On a perfect summer's day;
I think these photos have a Willy Wonkerish feel about them. Kinda like the bumbles are immersed in a sea of lilac candy fronds...which I suppose they sort of are...
Such handsome creatures, wouldn't you agree. Purple is definitely their colour;
And they're such hard workers. Out of all the bugs I find in need of assistance, I reckon most of them are bumbles. They do tend to over exert themselves. Naughty fellows;
It's not just we humans that should remember to take the time to smell the roses;
Deep breath now;
Time for a well deserved rest;
