Hanging with the homebees
Two honey bees have a meet 'n greet on a blade of grass outside their hive this afternoon near my home in Elkton, Oregon.
I put on a little protection while shooting photos of the beehive. The bees seemed pretty calm and happy with the warmish weather and the nearby blooming orchard. I probably would have been fine without the headgear, but gosh I hate getting stung. I used a hand held flash on a sync-cord to get the super cool back light on the bees. You can see the flash head sitting on the hive in the self portrait.
