The blooming of the flowers brings such things as the Bumblebees! This Bumblebee is working on our Lupine Flowers. Round and round the Bumblebee goes!
One thing you can be sure of is? These Bumblebee's are to hard at work to really care that we are watching! At times the Bumblebee's will fly up to you to check you out, sometimes it seams as if aggressively! Though no need to swat at the Bumblebee's, they are just checking out the situation!
Each year we seam to get more and more of this particular species. They do like the Lupine Flowers and they are going to the Raspberry flowers right now. These Bumblebee's are flying right by the Columbine and the other flowers at this point. Perhaps they want to finish with the Lupine and the Raspberries before going on to the others??
Photographing the Bumblebee to me is like a dance. They go round and round the Lupine Flowers, so this helps when wanting to take photographs of the Bumblebee's! I have photographed other bee's and a smaller species of the Bumblebee and they did not do this round and round think these larger Bumblebee's do.
I do like the background being somewhat a solid color. Makes the color of the Bumblebee stand out! Hairy little ones aren't they? I am sure this species of Bumblebee is nesting somewhere nearby? Who knows perhaps they took over one of the birds boxes I put out?
I do enjoy bringing the small to the spotlight! I do not feel the small creatures get enough attention by most people! A little incite into their working world.
There is one spot in the garden right now that is getting more attention by well, all these small creatures! Not to sure why? Though here in the High Desert not everything is blooming just yet! The Lilacs did not bloom like the typically do. The freezing nights did not help the blooms one bit, so I am sure for these small creatures the other flowers that are opening are a welcoming site!
Thank you for coming by and checking out this small series of photographs of this Bumblebee doing what it would be doing if we were paying it attention or not!
