Project 365 - Busy Bees
Bees are creatures of habit and very task oriented. There is a portion of the meadow that I mow that runs up into the grove near the hives. As I mow, the bees continue their work of flying in and out of the hives in a bee line; a straight, unwaivering, line from point A to B. They are not deterred by my presence. They bounce off of my head as I intersect their flight plan.
There are some bees whose job it is to guard the hive. As I completed this shoot, one of these bees took their job a bit too seriously and chased me all the way across the meadow, over the driveway and into the circle garden before peeling off and heading home.
