Mind your own beeswax

Apropos to one of my previous posts about Bermuda's Bees, this sight at Bermuda's Royal Botanical Gardens somewhat mollified me. While I dared to inch closer to capture it on film, I had to hold back so as not to blind the bees with the flashes emanating from my camera, lest I upset them. Like anyone I'm sure, I'm not gung ho about getting stung by bees. Besides, wouldn't that defeat the purpose, seeing as how they die after they sting you? Looking at the picture though (and look closely), imagine many more flowers just like this one and many more bees going about their day doing what they do best. Looking at the picture, how many bees can you round up? Looking at the picture, perhaps there is hope for us yet, but only if we tread lightly.

Great Photo! But I sure would have kept my distance....I don't really like bees and I'm allergic to them!

It's funny reading three consecutive sentences starting with 'Looking at the picture'; I did a double-take (more like triple) to make sure my eyes weren't going all funny on me.

BB: I honestly don't know if I'm allergic to bees. I haven't been stung yet...

FFM: Made you look thrice, didn't it!
