Photostory Friday – Busy as a Bee

While I was “busy” pulling weeds out back yesterday and the boys were eating their lunch on the deck, I heard loud buzzing in my left ear. I looked over at the blooming holly bush and realized that there were tons of bees doin’ their thang.

I called The B Man over and when he arrived next to me he simply declared “Their busy getting their nectar!” Then he realized how many of them there were and he promptly scurried back up to his lunch. Like FAST.

I went and got my camera and busied myself with continued practice of taking close-ups with my camera.

Weeds, what weeds?
