I had to think about this week's topic for some time. I didn't want to use the traditional attractive as in Johnny Depp is very attractive. I wanted something that was attracted to something else. Well, these bees are always right outside my front door. They love my lavender. I have lavender planted on both sides of my walk way. I love the smell as I'm walking to my front door. At first I was really annoyed by the bees. Who needs them anyway, they are just a pest, right? Now I look forward to seeing my bees. I've grown quite fond of them. I think when the lavender is all gone, I will miss them.
Taking these pictures required a lot of patience. I used my macro lens, so I had to get up close and personal with my little friends. A lot of the focusing was just eyeballing and guessing. I can't believe the shots I got. Of course for every good one, there were plenty of bad. I've decided to post more than just one because I really like these shots. The top photo is my true photo submission.
