Have you seen...

"Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that, so it goes on flying anyway." ~Mary Kay Ash

"Have you seen...." is an effort to discover the unusual beauty in things not usually appreciated for their beauty.

Nina--lovely photos. I like the close ups of the bumble bees. . .right? Those are bumble bees.

Hi Nina,

This post is great and photos. I agree with your comment on beauty that isn't usually appreciated. My first photos of bumble bees thrilled me. They are kind of heavy but make their way:

I never overlook a bumble bee :o)

Yes, bumblebees.
And although I usually steer clear of anything that stings, these fellows were so engrossed in their work, I was able to get reeeal close without any cares.
Mary even has one airborne!

Cool bumblebee pix. Those milkweed flowers must taste as sweet as they smell - at least to a bumblebee or butterfly.

I love these posts of yours!

Any milkweed patch is THE place to be - so much insect activity!

Bumblebees have character,as your beautiful pictures show.

I wonder if there isn't a little bumblebee in all of us --- we can do things we think we can not do.
