Trying to take a picture of a busy old bee is harder than I thought!
Those suckers are Fast!
Bunny was watching this little fella and was squealing with joy. She loves bugs! I've made a point of not getting creeped out about bugs so my kids would not fear them. They are fascinating! (Although Adventure Man did ask me to stop taking pictures of spiders…) :)
That reminded me of a story my mom tells. She says I was about 2 years old when she heard me singing in the back yard. She looked out the window and saw me sitting under the Bird of Paradise holding a bee in between my fingers. I was singing to it. The bee was struggling.
I think it was this story that made my brothers start to call me the bee charmer. I wasn't stung that time, but I've been stung before. I was even attacked by a swarm when I was five. But I've never been afraid of them like some people are.
In fact, I would even say that bees are my favorite insect. This is a bumble bee. There are 20,000 known species of bees.
Do you have a creepy crawly that you can't stand? Do you have a favorite?
