Two bee, or not two bee?

The first apricot blossom has popped. Calling all bees!

I thought I'd check around to see if there were any busy bees buzzing, when something caught my eye poking out of one of the winter rhododendrons...I think it was a bee-hind...

Ah ha! There he is ~

He then dive bombed me, so I left...really quickly.

  1. But look at those lovely blooms!
    I hope your visitor bee-haved himself. He should learn to mind his own buzz-ness and not to dive bomb the provider of the nectar filled blooms!

  3. Hi Daffy ~

    It bee-hooves me to respond to your comment :) It seems to me that these early bees do not seem to bee of the mellow humming variety ~ perhaps they are bee-mused or bee-wildered bee-cause the weather is unsettled and they are cranky...or perhaps the orange and black striped scarves they have to wear are interfering with their buzz-ness. However, if I was a bee, perhaps I wouldn't appreciate someone coming up bee-hind me with a camera while I was focusing on sustenance. Thanks for coming by, I'll buzz off now....

  4. Hi Flighty ~ Glad you liked the photos...one must bee careful when sneaking up on buzzing things with stingers. Yes, it seems to me that Daffy and I both like playing and perhaps, are of the same ilk!

  5. Hi Glo! The title of your new entry tells me that you have a great sense of humour.hehehe I'm sure you are a lovely person, I love good-humoured people.
    The shots of the bee is very interesting and beautiful; once I took a photo of it too, of course it was a Brazilian bee.
    I'm very pleased to meet you.
    Hugs. Lady_drid

  6. A warm welcome to you, Lady_Drid! What a lovely thing to say ~ I do indeed enjoy looking through the eyes of good humour ~ life is so much more enjoyable from that perspective :)

    I look forward to reading your blog and looking at your colourful photos ~ so interesting to see your part of the world and to learn about it through your postings. :)

  7. I'm with Daffy - those rhododendrons are glorious! No wonder the bee was feeling territorial!

  8. Hi Nikki ~ Yes, they are bloomin' lovely, aren't they? Promises of things to come in the rest of the garden, which at times seems to be the territory of other wildlife as well as the busy bee ~ like raccoons and deer! Thanks for dropping by :)

  9. Beautiful photos. I love to see bees in the garden, and their beehinds poking out from the flowers! Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day here, and a couple of times I had to rescue two huge bumble bees from our sun lounge. They didn't like me helping them, but I am sure they were much happier outside. x
