Honey Bees

Here are some photos of honey bees. I usually spend time focusing on bumble bees and carpenter bees (the big fuzzy bee category), today I thought I share some of honey bees. I find it interesting that the flowers I find the bumble and carpenter bees on are different than the flowers I found the honey bees on. They seem to have their preferences.

These flowers had tons of honey bees all over them

Thank you for stopping by. I have more photographs on Flickr and Facebook. To see those you can click on the links along the left side of the blog for either Flickr or Facebook. To see more of my photography, you can also visit my Artfire studio, The Shutterbug Eye.



  1. Thanks Kelly. I have a bunch more I'll be posting in the next week or two from my Cantigny garden trip. There were so many bees and wasps it was unreal. I have to say I used to be terrified of them but now I go right up to the flowers with lots of them to get good photos. I am getting over my fear through photography.
