Yo, bee.



What do I have to say here? I can't identify bees, who do you think I am? An entomologist? No, I am not. Macro Monday

Very nice macro. I had a friend doing a study of bees for her doctoral and often would join her when she was doing her mounts at night. She would open the jaws to get a proper mount and of course I made cracking sounds when she did this.
