Endangered species?

We need these guys. Seriously, we really do.

WE sure do. These are Golden Northern Bumblebees or I think your's is. They do a mighty job and I have seen a number of them here each day. I am also seeing increasing numbers of honey bees. A couple of hummingbirds and lots of other pollinating animals.

Nice photograph, Dan.

I love bees! I am working on a post about CCD, and have been for some time.......doing quite a bit of research on the little bugger :o)

What a spectacular shot!! You can even see all the little veins(?) on his wings. That's so beautiful. It is very troubling that so many bees are disappearing these days. We don't realize how important they are until they start to disappear.
