This week I went bee hunting with my kids. We caught some interesting insect activities on camera and have enjoyed them immensely. I hope you enjoy them as well. (By the way, it’s a little unnerving to have a bunch of bees fly at you when you are looking at them through a telephoto lens, I had a hard time not backing up!)
