November 21 and we still have honeybees!! I am VERY glad to see this fellow since there have been so many reports of Colony Collapse Disorder on the East coast. I had just clicked the shutter button when the bee came into the crosshairs. Real serendipity!

    Wow! A fabulous macro of this little guy. They swarm our hummingbird feeder. We didn't have many bees last year, but they have made a spectacular comeback this year.
