34/365 – “Bee-sy”

I love to watch bees doing their thing. Always so busy, flying here and there, it’s hard to catch them in one place. I get especially excited these days because bees have been dying off in big numbers in California. I often find dead ones around my garden, which is very upsetting. Beekeepers blame the die-offs on something called tank mixing, which is when farmers apply more than one pesticide or insecticide at once. I don’t use any pesticide around my garden and yet find little ones dead all the time… So these days when I see bees busy being bees I have to make some shots. Just wish I had my macro lens on…
