She is doing her work very competently, Mary...throwing her whole body into it!

Love these shots!
Mary MacADNski: She is in her finest dance and perhaps trance.

What an amazing 3 photo series..the top bee seems to have pollen all over his face
Mary MacADNski: The ant just happened to be easily available so I added that but should have put it last.
Great captures...
Mary MacADNski: Much obliged.

Amazing capture! Is that pollen on the bee in the first photo? WOW
Mary MacADNski: That is pollen on the bees in both bee shots.
Terrific collection of photos Mary!!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks. It is only a taste. I got lots.

Great shots. LOVE the bright yellow and we all need these Pollinators... there are less than we need...
Mary MacADNski: I have been in dandelion love for over a week.

Three terrific shots Mary... we only had about 10 dandelions in our yard three days ago... but i hasn't stopped raining since and my grass is mostly yellow now...
i may get some shots like this if the ground ever dries upgrin

Mary MacADNski: I absolutely love them. After mowing the other day the lawn was dandelion free for about six hours.

Life at this scale is really fascinating Mary, and cameras allow this to be captured.
Mary MacADNski: I wish I had good lenses. This kit lens is garbage. My old bridge camera took better shots when it worked.
I so agree, Mary. God save the bees! We, too!
Mary MacADNski: We are not faring too badly here though I have heard differently. I have plenty of bees. Just came in from photographing them in the apple blossoms.

Well taken Mary: fine shots
Mary MacADNski: Much obliged, Chris.
well timed to capture the bee flying in!
Mary MacADNski: I was just trying the same thing but with apple blossoms.

Incoming!,, you have caught the moment perfectly
Mary MacADNski: They were pretty slow moving compared to what I just experienced a half hour ago with them in apple blossoms.
great close up, and stunning yellow
Mary MacADNski: I like Canon yellow.
These are indeed three very fine shots Mary, particularly the bottom one.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I took tons of them and will appreciate them so much next winter.
Lovely action shots Mary, hard to capture. You have done a grand job.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks very much. It was easy compared to what I just experienced a half hour ago with them in apple blossoms.
Yellow! my favourtie! nicely taken!
Mary MacADNski: I like the yellow of dandelions so, so much. The pollen (thus top) of the dandelion is pure gold.
Nicely caught, I really like the bottom shot, it should have had star billing really smile
Mary MacADNski: Brian liked that better too. I got several shots and usually just grab one or two to show here from each shoot. I am at the apple blossoms now and the bees were moving frantically around the tree I was at tonight.

HE's been busy little bee; look at all that pollen. I wonder if they ever suffer with hayfever?
Mary MacADNski: That is a very good question, Alan. I have a son who is allergic to honey bees; only honey bees, not wasps, hornets or bumble bees.
Excellent series Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Richard. Spring has sprung!

And what a thorough job that top little bee is doing, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Dandelions are one of their first abundant food sources of the spring.

What a fantastic shot Mary, that bee certainly is getting plenty of pollen, she looks quite balletic in her pose
Mary MacADNski: I love the dancing look of her. The other thing |I thought of was , out working so hard, gathering pollen and having to pee so bad that you have to cross your legs.
I'm all for bees!
Mary MacADNski: Yes!! Plant more flowers!
Little dancers loving yellow. I like your pix. (Wish I could figure out how to post more than one image on a page.)
Mary MacADNski: The jpg has to be published somewhere, either here on SC or another blog. Then you can copy it to use as you wish.
