Local wildlife

I confess that I sort of cheated on that last post. Alright, maybe more than sort of. Actually, I had the code saved already so that all I had to do was paste and post. I really cheated. Tonight, I'm making a real post. Note that I did not say a good post, or a thoughtful post, or even a post with a point, just a real one.

On the day that I finally remembered to carry my camera to school, I was walking down an outside staircase with a retaining wall to my right. It had hundreds of flowers cascading over it thus:

I was walking down that staircase minding my own business when I heard a noise right by my ear. I turned my head a saw this:
Let's look a little closer
A bee. Of course at that point, I did the only natural thing - pulled out my camera and started taking pictures like a good blogger.
Unfortunately, the bee was much faster than my camera, so I only got one more picture of her (Useless trivia: All worker bees are infertile females.).

And with more of the flowers left in the frame:
Unfortunately, I have nothing insightful to say, so enjoy the pictures and try not to think about it too much.

at least the bee you saw didn't sting you like the one I saw did a couple of years ago...

Yeah, holding my camera six inches away from it probably wasn't the brightest thing I've ever done, but apparently this bee was on a mission and would not be distracted.

Nice to meet someone else who carries around the camera to capture things to blog about. What geeks we are! What are you studying in school? I'm an RN. And a wife and a Mom. Oh yea, and I play the Apron Queen on my blog. :)
