A bee picture



I waited a minute or two for this photo which lasted 1/400th of a second.  I have learned not to chase and follow bees from flower to flower.  Instead I stuck by one flower and waited for a bee to stop by.   Bee photography 101 I bet.

Insects on a prickly pear cactus

These insects made their home on a large prickly pear cactus this summer.  When the flowers dried and fell,  they moved elsewhere. I’m not sure if that was a coincidence.

These moved as a unit. When I put my hand near them, they evenly spread apart.

What will the cactus attract next summer?
